MinXus Mail Bag: Three TLP Collabs by Jim Leftwich & John M. Bennett

TLP - 10.18.2015 - 1

TLP (Tacky Little Pamphlet) by Jim Leftwich (Roanoke, Virginia, USA) and John M. Bennett (Columbus, Ohio, USA)

The mail art package Jim Leftwich sent us that contained the Trashemic Essays also included other vispo material including these three TLP collabs. We have been proponents of the Tacky Little Pamphlet as a mail art form for some time. These collabs provide excellent examples. They reveal how easy it is to make a TLP, and they also show how the panels can be used effectively. (Click to enlarge.)

This classic TLP uses a single, folded sheet of paper that provides four panels.

Note the imprint of John M. Bennett’s Luna Bisonte Prods, which has been publishing breakthrough postavant work for many years.

We think these two pages (above) are especially FAB. Enlarge and have a closer look.

Many thanks to Jim Leftwich for sending us these fantastic, classic TLPS for the MinXus Archives. We are longtime and very enthusiastic John M. Bennett fans as well, so these have great meaning to us.
