I recently started a mail art project called "CowParade: Mail-Art Style." The project came about when I started to make 4' x 6' collages using cow images sourced from a thrifted book, CowParade New York, by Thomas Craughwell (2000).
I ended up making twelve cow collages, and I sent them to mail artists who are active in 'mail art cow groups' on either IUOMA.ning or Facebook. Along with a collage, each recipient has been given a cow image cut from the same book. I have asked them to create a piece of cow art to sent back to me.
