Hazel Jones/ A.1. - Collaged Flyers

Old collaged flyers turned into ebook at Issuu. We did about three of these at the time- usually when we were in Walsall , at Hazel's parents when we were first "courting". A shared sense of the absurd is very useful and a love of mail art ofcourse, which was very strong at the time. We photo copied these and with added rubber stamps and writing they were duly dispatched into the Mailstrom.

John Calvert Palmer ( Rudi Rubberoid et al ) 1927 - 2012

Sad news of Rudi's passing. He will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to know him or to get his wonderful decorated envelopes and enclosures. His rubber stamp 'zines like Nomo The Zine and others were always a treat to take part in and to recieve. A most generous correspondent who always filled his envelopes with all manner of stickers, stamps and gew-gaws. His letters were fun too. When I first got in touch I imagined a much younger man and was shocked to find out that he was well over 50 at the time.

Here's an interview he did with Ruud Janssen HERE.
