Some mail artists cringe at the mention of Add & Pass sheets. Others are delighted to receive them, and at times may even volunteer to take some from mail artists who are burdened with piles of them .
A&Ps are okay by me - they're fun, but my turnaround time is pretty bad. I tend to let them stack up. Months may go by until I get around to adding to and passing them on.
I also enjoy creating my own a&p sheets, collab. books and faux money to circulate throughout the network. I haven't kept track, so not sure of the number of pieces that are floating around out there.
To follow are photos of a few that have made their way back home.
More mail from Ilya Semenenko-Basin...
The enclosed postcard was adorned with Ilya's signature postage stamp art. Beautiful!
SCAM CLAMS - similar to Fluxus Bucks, but more clammy! Something new from The Lyons' Den. Currently outgoing to other mail artists.
Fluxus Bucks is an artistic project within the Eternal Network. Mail artist, ex posto facto - a.k.a. Julie Jefferies (U.S.A.) started the project in 1994.
A Flux Buck is an artists' banknote which is distributed through the mail system. It makes the rounds to other network artists, who add to it and mail it out again (much like the traditional 'Add & Pass' / 'Add & Send').
