An artistamp (a portmanteau of the words "artist" and "stamp") or artist's stamp refers to a postage stamp-like artform. It is similar to a Cinderella stamp in that it is not valid for postage, but it differs from a forgery or a bogus stamp in that (typically) the creator has no intent to fool any post office or collector of stamps. (However, depending on how the stamp is used, it may be difficult to distinguish artistamps from local post stamps.) The artistamp is intended to be a miniature artwork which can depict or commemorate any subject its creator chooses.

Here's a new Nonlocal artistamp sheet, "Our Wet-Bulb Planet," for Adam Roussopoulos' Global Warming artistamp revue special. Causes, Consequences and Impact around the polycrisis we're facing. Cheery stuff!

Yaaay! Cancelled artistamps! My current obsession and collection! Thank you, Dave Hankins!!

Artistamps haven’t “made it” until they’ve been cancelled in the postal system. This year, I am collecting cancelled artistamps. Please help keep the artistamp tradition alive by using artistamps on your mailart envelopes. And if you receive artistamps completed with postal marks, please send them to me! Thanks! Coco M
