The term mail art refers to pieces of art sent through the mail rather than displayed or sold in traditional venues.
Mail artists often use inexpensive and recycled media including postcards, collage, rubber stamps, and images made on photocopying machines.
Mail artists sometimes include poetry and other forms of art with their mailings.
Mail art is also a truly international activity. If you begin searching mail art websites, you will see practitioners are everywhere, from Italy to Malaysia to Switzerland, in every corner of the globe.
