Réparation de poésie #16 is now ready
Réparation de poésie #16 (Jean-Claude Gagnon)
I got a call from Jean-Claude Gagnon Tuesday night. My copy of Réparation de poésie #16 was ready to be picked up. Went to his place in Quebec City Wednesday night. Always interesting to meet Jean-Claude and to talk (face to face) mailart, what he rarely does he told me, since there's not too many mailartists in the area. As a matter of fact, it's the same for myself!
This year, Jean-Claude made 75 copies with the help of Hélène Paré, Ulla Gunst and Valérie Cousineau who made the different covers for the book (mine has been done by Hélène Paré).
Jean-Claude told me, for #17 next year, it will be an issue of 65 copies only since he is receiving less entries years after years.
For the ones interested to participate for next year's project, you have to send 65 original pages, maximum size of 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 (14 x 21,5 cm). The theme is to make a link between your text and image. Techniques; mailart, visual poetry, collage, computer art. Deadline 1st March 2006.
In order to help Jean-Claude covering the ever increasing postage cost, he is asking to contribute 15$ CAD, $10USD or 10 Euros. Believe me, it's not much for what you are receiving. For issue #16, a total of 40 artists works from 7 countries are included in this work.
Some previous issues are still available at a cost of 60$ CAD each. Check with Jean-Claude for details (email@example.com).
