TAM Rubberstamp Archive

The TAM Rubberstamp Archive started in 1983 by sending out the first sheets into the network Ruud knew then, and is now over 32 years old. Still more contributions come in and only rarely the normal public can get a glimpse of what the archive contains. Several documentations about this archive are previously made, and online a large catalogue is available. (You can find an overview of all important details mentioned in previous publications (see also www.iuoma.org).

The SHEETS

The TAM-Rubber Archive contains a lot of things that have to do with rubberstamps. Also stamps itself. The main part is however a collection of stamp-sheets. A sheet is printed by me and then sent into the network. Sme sheets are returned immediately. Some are 'collage' stampsteets and travel the network. n the last 23 years over 13,000 sheets returned from the aproximate 45,000 sheets I have sent out. Even since the archive moved from Tilburg to Breda, the sheets still come in. For spreading the news of the new address new sheets are made that are sent into the network. Do mail-artists nowadays still use rubberstamps? As the archive will show: yes, they do. Posted by Picasa
