Exhibition catalogue of primarily 1971 works of Mesciulam, a Turkish artist living in Italy and an early practitioner of Mail Art. Blank letterheads were distributed by Mesciulam, to which the participant would create an image and return with a list of twelve names and addresses. Mesciulam would then color photocopy the mailing, assign a unit number, and distribute to the twelve designated receivers. With this system of distribution, Mesciulam extended the concept of "add and pass" first begun by Ray Johnson. Includes biography, bibliography, two essays (Testo Critico di Corrado Maltese and Testimonianza di Vico Faggi), and a list of works from the exhibition. Uncommon.
