We are still here!!!

Written By: kimberly Published: Feb 4th, 2013

We apologize for the minor panic last week. For those who have not heard, Lorem Ipsum, the bookstore that Papercut lives in, is facing some serious financial trouble. Their landlord has extended the time they have to pay their back-rent, however, we are not quite sure what the future holds for the library or this store. Both are incredible resources, and now true staples of Inman Square. We will keep everybody updated as soon as we know more. Until then, please assume Papercut will contnue to be open during our regular hours (Friday-Monday, 2-7pm).

Thank you!

Mail Art Zine Release and Maker Meetup

Written By: drawmedy Published: Dec 2nd, 2012

This December we’ll be celebrating the release of a new mail art zine by PZL friend Marissa Falco, and creating some radical postal creations of our own.

Originally conceived as a means for teaching young mail-art makers about the rules of the post office, the Parcel Ghost quickly took on an afterlife of his own. In the Parcel Ghost’s Guide to Post, the friendly spirit (who used to work for the post office when he was alive) shares his knowledge about mail practices and particulars, and tells some stories about his adventures and mail he’s sent and received.

Check out the new zine and join us for a mail art meetup — we will have inspiration, resources, and supplies on hand.  Here are some resources to get you thinking about mail art.

P.S.  Here’s the Facebook event.
