This box is the residue of mail art activity undertaken by Lois Klassen, during the years 1996-1998. In keeping with the project theme, all of the items meet two criteria: the creators identified them as "books" ; and, their creation was enabled by some kind of "collaborative" process. Each book item is labeled with a catalogue number that corresponds to information about it in the box's index, as well as in the original exhibition catalogue. The books found within the box are:
