What are Artistamps?
Artistamps are one of the most difficult to understand topics ever. Because there are
many perspectives that can be applied, when you begin to study the complexities of
artistic stamps. The perspectives come from a great number of directions. For example, the
perspective of philately (the in-depth, or 'scientific' approach to the study of stamps);
or, the perspective of the casual stamp collector enhancing their hobby by adding specific
topical forms of art -even artists- to their hobby; or, from the perspective of a mail art
purist. You may look at them as we do. From the perspective of stamps as miniature
reproductions of fine art by highly talented artists, documenting their works in a unique
form; namely, artistamps. Serving to promote and advertise the skills of the artist and
the artwork itself. And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg!
