My Mail Art in 2020


This is the Year of the Rat in the Chinese calendar but it turned out to be the Year of the Corona. Nobody is having an easy time but Mail Artists benefited from having something absorbing to do during their lockdowns.


(This is my signature Rayrat by Keith Bates)

In October 2019 I started mailing an origami envelope printed on the inside  and called it a Zinenvelope. A friend called it a Foldilope so foldilope it is. I issue one every other month with something or other enclosed.

Here I show the work I send. The work I receive can be seen in
