Taken from listings first compiled by the Vancouver-based Image Bank cooperative in FILE magazine issues 1, 2, and 3 from January 1970 to November 1972. This is an important landmark in the spread of international mail art, as Image Bank and General Idea (publishers of FILE) took mail art out of the hands of a limited few (The New York Correspondence School) and brought it to the attention of a broad international community of artists.”–John Held, Jr., ed., Mail Art: An Annotated Bibliography (1991) 22.
