An Anthology of International Doodles
A doodle is an unfocused or unconscious drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied – sometimes. I have not noticed that many of the drawings in this collection are ‘mindless’, nor are the doodles always drawings. Within this anthology, doodles have been expanded to include stamping, writing and collage – although there is a good representation of pencil/pen, symmetric/organic examples. Successful Mail Art practitioners have proven to be those of a generous spirit. No wonder it does not appeal to all. Sad. Collaboration brings a joy quite unknown in a world where everyone’s main task is Self.
Book 1: David Dellafiora (Australia), Erich Sundermann (Austria), Anke van den Berg and Guido Vermeulen (Belgium), Ana Martin Austin (Brazil), Anna Banana and Theo Nelson (Canada) (FOUR sets!)
Book 2: Kensa Riscorla (England), Alvaro, Wolfgang Guenther and Nikolaus Mohr (Germany), Katerina Nikoltsou (Greeece), Tiziana Baracchi, Vittore Baroni, Pier Roberto Bassi and Walter Pennacchi (Italy). I bound Italy before Germany – I think it was winter in Adelaide – my mind went numb from the cold.
