A mail art project brought to you by Ruben and friends.

Ruben Cooke began cancer treatment for relapsed Hodgkins Lymphoma at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in the month of January, 2010. This project has been designed to provide some distraction from the reality of his situation. We plan to exhibit some or all of the work received, upon completion of Ruben’s treatment. We will be posting images of received submissions on our blog site (see below), so our contributors can stay tuned.
