iHanna mailart swap

It’s been a long, long, long time since I’ve had a mailart haul to share. For the iHanna Mailart Swap I created little books like I’ve done in the past. I picture them as a collaborative project. I create the cover and the recipient gets to fill the inside pages as they like. I think it’s fun to send a book, it’s just a bit different than your average mailart postcard.

4.2.12 10 books wafer sealed

The books get sent out sealed up like the picture above. The covers have been coated with a varnish first, to hopefully keep them together through the mail.

4.2.12 front of 4 books 4.2.12 back of 4 books

Above are the fronts and backs of each book. I include a rubberband mailed inside the front cover to keep the book closed like pictured above. Below are all of the books opened flat without the mailing addresses, of course.

Hi, I'm Robyn and I was Hatched from a Kinder Surprise Egg. Graphic Designer by day, Maker of things by night. I have worked as a graphic artist professionally since I was 16 years old. Went on to get my Bachelors of Art from NIU. I like to share my Artwork online at flickr.com/photos/robayre and on my own personal website http://www.robayre.com. I also have an online shop http://www.robayre.etsy.com where you can find more of my "crafty" sorts of things, as well as a random piece of artwork here and there. Oh, and I'm also an occasional contributor to Artomat (artomat.org).
