Last year, when I started to get more interested in collage and, by extension, participating in mail art, I trolled around trying to figure out how to get started. Good Mail Day was a great primer, of course, and I quickly got myself a copy of that. There are lots of other great sites and resources I found, but one of the first was Karen Isaacson's Mail Me Some Art. This site has lots of open swaps, which I find are great for trying new ideas and techniques, and there is also a spot for informal exchanges with other like-minded mail art/artist types. Like Liberate Your Art, which I wrote about last time, you send in your work and get others in exchange. Here's what I received as part of the exchange for grid postcards.
