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).

DaDa machine Fluxus
A nice combination. Above the original handcarved rubberstamp made somewhere in the 90-ies by Ruud Janssen. Used on outgoing mail in these years.

TAMned To Be A Tourist - Stamp from H.R. Fricker
This rubberstamp is a gift from H.R. Fricker for the TAM Rubberstamp Archive received in 1985. Hans-Ruedi always had special texts when it came to rubberstamps. This is e remake of his text "Damned to be a Tourist", made for the first Tourism events in 1986 when the DNC (Decentralized Networking Congress) was done for the first time.
