Homage to the stamp

As a fan of the stamp (I have a moderately geeky collection), I was really taken with Gavin Potenza’s sublime letterpress print ‘Homage to the Stamp’. A limited run of 200 were released in conjunction with his poster, A Field Guide to the Stamps of the World, created for Tiny Showcase’s Learning Press – a new series of “mildly factual, mostly fictitious, educational posters”. I would love to add these make-believe stamps to my collection.

Love this post! I’ve just started getting into stamps (I’ve discovered a stamp shop across the street from my work) – these are great!
