Mail art from Judith Dagan (Israel), received May 14, 2019...
So thrilled to receive this piece from Judi Dagan. We are both members of the "Asemic Writing for Mail-Artists" group on IUOMA-ning, where Judi shared it with the group in April. When I saw the piece on our group wall, I told Judi that it was awesome. So naturally Judi sent it to me!!
Mail from November 2018:
November came a knockin' and my mailbox was a rockin' with a rather hefty envelope from John M. Bennett. In his note to me John mentioned, "Some reading matter for you enclosed - for yr [sic] edification or puzzlement (which are perhaps the same thing)." When I reviewed the generous offerings I conceded that JMB hit the nail on the head!
If you've been around the m-a block long enough, you know that John M. Bennett is an experimental text, sound and visual poet. He has published a great deal of his work (and the works of like-minded writers / artists) through his small press, LUNA BISONTE PRODS. I am pleased to have received a sampling of these publications.
I haven't had a lot of exposure to experimental language, so I will make a point to delve into this packet of material. Another great resource I plan to make use of is John M. Bennett's website!
Thanks so much for you generous mail, JMB!
