Old Stamps

I don't collect stamps... but I collect really detailed photographs of stamps. Is that better or worse than collecting stamps? Funny how something so mundane, the act of sticking a poorly printed stamp to a letter, the post office stamping the letter, and the abuse it takes along the way, can translate into something as beautiful as these examples. Merely means to and end, these little pieces of postal history, baring all the evidence of their travels, stand as our inspiration.
