Postage Stamp Artwork

I have found another love, yes it's true. Although I will not leave my first love (advertising), stamp collecting is has my attention. The story behind each piece of paper, where it's from, who it represents, the colors, the design - similar to branding in some ways. The British Postal Museum is keeping this lost art alive with a contest for kids. Gone are the days of sending letters and cards, we communicate here - online, in email or by smart phones. The stamp has all but died. When I dove into a box of stamps my father gave me I was immersed for hours. Clueless to the right and wrong of god stamp collecting, I was amazed with the color and design details. Since then I've organized, admired and frame some of my favorites. Enjoy.
