Greetings KnowMates around the world!

I - CaroKnowNews - have been creating KnowNews zine and sending it out quarterly by snail mail for three years.

KnowNews is one double-sided B4 page printed on average photocopiers and posted to KnowMates around the world in the first week of January, April, July, and October.

I love sending post - knowing that I am responsible for the joy of discovering the arrival of real post.
I support postal systems around the world through my continued use of their services and random gifts to Post Office staff.

KnowNews is purposeless creativity, unidentifiable, joy in the post.

KnowNews is...

Fostering creativity is of vital importance in this beautiful mad world we currently call home. Holding myself accountable to this belief, I decided to start with the self - so I create and send KnowNews once a season. 

If words are unread, do they exist any more than those unwritten?

I am committed to improving the quality of my creative output through the medium of snail mail.

I am fortunate enough to benefit from the generous time and skills of a professional designer, and I request images and other gems from those more skilled in visual artistry than I.

Thank you for reading about my KnowNews journey - you reading this far already means the world to me. 

The title "KnowNews" is from: 

No news is new news
Only old news
With new names

Sensation masquerades as change
But the pillars of history stand age-old sames. 

I am sincerely looking forward to physically connecting with you and appreciate any and all of your precious feedback. 

With love, 

CaroKnowNews

  • I am humbled by your huge support - is it possible that I'm doing something right?! You'll receive a hand-signed and numbered coloured copy of KnowNews. Your copy will be numbered between 4 and 15! I write your name and address by hand while thinking deeply about you - I am honoured that my thoughts are physically connected to YOU through the movement of my hand, ink to paper, across the world directly into your hands and senses! I'll add random postable delights into your envelope as I continue to test the limits of what can be sent as a 'normal letter' via postal systems worldwide - thank you!

I am overflowing with love to you and the universe - so deeply grateful to be alive and the incredible opportunities you and this world have given me. You'll receive a hand-signed and numbered coloured copy of KnowNews, random postable beauty in the envelope, and occasional originals of my work. You will receive copy number 1, 2, or 3. You can also receive the 'work-in-process' notes if you are interested! Whether you enjoy this role in active communication with me or simply as a receiver of my postal creativity, I consider you a working partner as I can become better at what I do thanks to you! Thank  you!

Printing costs and envelopes paid for!
Thanks to your support, the coins I put into the local convenience store photocopier are yours! This pays for printing KnowNews and enough envelopes for my current Snailing List and is a greatly encouraging first step for me!
