 Title:  James Evans mail art collection  
 Dates:  1970-1987, bulk 1984-1987 
 Abstract:  The collection assembled by James Evans reflects his own involvement in the mail art movement from from 1970 to 1987, particularly in the 1980s. Included are approximately 280 mail art projects by American, European and Japanese artists, as well as related ephemera, correspondence and publications. A large portion of the collection is books, stamps, stickers, postcards, and manifestos by Guglielmo Achille Cavellini, the Italian mail artist who coined the term autostoricizzazione (self-historicization).
