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.

A rare stamp portraying movie star Audrey Hepburn smoking sold for 67,000 euros, or almost $106,000 (Canadian) at an auction in Germany yesterday.
The stamp run was destroyed after Hepburn's son, Sean Ferrer, objected to the cigarette holder dangling from the actress's mouth and refused to grant copyright.

This my reflection artistamp sheet about this auction case
