SPARE

SPARE is a modest short-term artist residency program and resource center for Risograph printing, small-scale publishing, and bookmaking.” They are in Chicago. I was happy to participate (along with Linus Bill, David Bodhi Boylan, Steffen Bunte, Dante Carlos, Jay Cover, Thad Kellstadt, and Tim McMullen) in their first postcard series. Additionally, SPARE included print samples and registration tests on the reverse of the postcards and on a variety of smaller, separate cards. You can buy the series from their store.

“For the price of a 44ยข stamp, you can mail a letter anywhere within the nation’s borders. The service will carry it by pack mule to the Havasupai Indian reservation at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Mailmen on snowmobiles take it to the wilds of Alaska.”(1)

I have some mail to send (2)! I’m driving across the country in October and will be mailing from various places along the way. If you’d like a piece delivered somewhere in the U.S., please text or email the address to me (3) anytime before November, 2011.
