Niku & the Ephemeral Mailbox Museum

I make zines (crafts, mail art, etc.) under the Ephemeral Mailbox Museum and Sweet Tooth. Most of my zines are specifically themed; places I've lived, mail art, crafts, travel, collage art, mental health, etc.
My process is mostly cut-and-paste layout and I usually take a long time to complete a zine and usually have a few in progress at once. I have an etsy shop and a craft blog, please visit!
I especially like zines about crafts, mental health, place and space, and some really well-written personal zines that are out there.

Hey Niku!  I got Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2 in the mail yesterday and was jazzed to discover that you have a chapter!  Very cool.

I just browsed your Etsy shop. You have some sweeeeeet items for sale. I love the skeleton dress! (However, i am more buxom than the dress will allow.)

I would LOVE to trade zines with you! If you send me your mailing address, I will send whatever zines you want, then once you get them, just send me whatever of yours you think is fair.

and yes, it is the necklace you made that I am wearing in the photo. I adore that necklace. I can't even begin to describe how much I love it. I wear it SO MUCH and would wear it every day if only all my shirts a neckline that showed it off properly.

And people ask me about it all the time too. I particularly like it when folks jump a little when they realize what it is! Ha!

I just got Last Known Address from Parcell Press and really liked it a lot. I have been kind of dissapointed in the zines I have read lately. Your zine was a stand-out and the best one I have read in a while. I like how just by hearing the stories of your old houses/apartments showed me a lot about you and your life. <3
