The idea of Flux Libris began with a December 2011 letter enclosed along with a sheet of artistamps from Seattle artist Carl Chew, who invited Cascadia Artpost and other mail artists to produce a work for the "Ex Libris" exhibition of book plates at the Davidson Galleries in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. The exhibition is showing during the month of January. Despite the short notice, we quickly designed an artistamp based on the New Fluxus Symbol Set 1-B as the subject to commemorate the gallery exhibition and more than 50 years of the Fluxus attitude.
New Fluxus Symbol Set 1-B first appeared on September 6, 2006 as "clip art for everyone" posted by Allen Bukoff on the Fluxlist Blog, which can be found here:
