Mail Art Periodicals Inventory

The Museum of Modern Art Library has an amazing collection of Mail Art periodicals and zines. The Library acquired Mail artist and librarian John Held Jr.‘s large archive in the early 2000’s. A thorough annotated bibliography written by Held is available here, along with some statistics about the collection and Held’s essay Care and Feeding of Mail Art Zines. Just browsing through the names is really fun. Some of my personal favorites in the collection are Art For Um, Bern Porter International, ScoreMadam X’s Gazet, Rubberstampmadness, and VILE.
