Project in Canada

Hello Artist,
I am currently holding a mail art call for everyone all over the world to join in. Early next year through Spring I will be exhibiting the art that I receive to local libraries and other artisan fairs in my area, Ontario Canada. Specific dates are to be determined.
I kindly ask all participants to make a handmade bookmark or tag that is inspired by your favorite book.
It can be your favorite book as a child or as an adult, Or even both.
You can use any style, any genre, any theme, any size. any author. You are also welcome to send as many as you wish. As long as there is a hole punch at the top and a small space on the back that states your name and where you are from.
Please send to:
Erin Young
P.o.Box 7146
Innisfil, Ontario
L9S 1A9
Also if you could state somewhere on the envelope that it is for the Mail Art Call, "Bookmarks & Tags"
I will post all received art to the I.U.O.M.A website as well as Instagram.

The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is a word or expression chosen to reflect the passing year in language.
 Post-truth has been nominated as the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2016 and is an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’. 

Other words which were shortlisted were,

Project Brief:
It is clear that this selection of words represent a certain mood within society both within Europe and America, and is a representation of the increased sense of unease in the world. 
The question for this Mail-Art project is what does the word ‘Post-truth’ represent?

Marilyn Dammann - USA

My name is Karen Milszeski, I was a volunteer at Gallery 325 which was in the house of Marilyn Dammann ( Shadow Works). The gallery closed this year and a great deal of the mail art she had received is being cataloged at the Calumet Art Center up in the Keweenaw peninsula. The director of the center Ed Gray was a dear friend of Marilyn's. After we get the mail art cataloged we will have a monthly show of the mail art that she received either by artist or by the calls for art. We were wondering if anyone out there has any of Marilyn's mail art that she created to be added to what we have. Your response would be appreciated. Message me on Facebook or email sidnawbooks@yahoo.com. Check out The Calumet art Center on Facebook or web page. Thanks for your time. Karen
