A coincidental mail art assemblage
1990, 8.5x11, 90 pgs, $5. Collected by the avant garde museum of temporary art. " When we originally conceived the Novel Approach mail art project (in 1987), we naively expected that most of the submissions would somehow be novelistic--short fragments of writing & graphics that we at best illustrative--& that through the course of the eventual book a subtext of individual fragments would form an obscure storyline of coincidence, digression & image/narratives. The more contributions we received the more it became evident that the random collage (dare we say randomage?) look which dominates much of the xerozines of the 80's would also predominate over our collective novel project. Really the collective novel had quickly become a mail art novel; what was originally planned to be a literary document in reality was a document of info/mail/cultural/exchange." --from the introduction.
