IUOMA logo's

I collect all logo's that were made for IUOMA (see http://www.iuoma.org). They are published on a blog (see:http://iuomalogos.blogspot.com/ , but I intend to use them also in a book that is being prepared. If you have any logo's (and add the name of the creator), I am most happy to receive them at info@iuoma.org or http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifyou can also send prints and designs to:

P.O. Box 1055
4801 BB Breda

The IUOMA started in 1988 and has it's own Social Network at: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/ where almost 2000 members arrange their activities from that place. We expect two celebrations soon: The 2000th member, and also in November the 3 year on NING.

Thanks for your sendings!

TAM-Bulletin - 1985

In the 80-ies I issued the TAM-Bulletin. A Mail-Art magazine that was sent out with lots of Mail-Art information about the network. Some copies now pop up on the Internet. Here is a sample from 1985, sent to Mr. Zan in the USA. :

He scanned it with the little note I added to it and published in on facebook. All originals of the TAM-Bulletin are still in the TAM-Archive. These pages were all typed on a typewriter. The pre-computer days were so much fun but also labour intensive....
