I have my VISPO book 1 chapters in a biscuit tin next to my other mail art. This morning as I walked into the studio I has an impulse to look through the chapters (again). I do this periodically. Participating in that exchange was something special and the work I received means different things at different times. The fact that it's a unit distinguishes it from other mail art for me. It was also where I dipped my toe in to the world of VISPO.
Today I re-discovered Bernd Reichert's chapter, and I realised I had never reproduced it for others to see! Each of Bernd's chapters was bespoke. I'm not sure if each chapter looked at a different artist as I didn't see other examples, except for the cover of Matthew Stolte's but mine is an homage to Mike Kelley, I think. (On page three Bernd writes, ' homage to Mike Kelly', but I suspect it is MIKE KELLEY).
This chapter arrived in March 2012, beautiful and treasured.
