SILLY STAMPS – an appeal

This is an appeal for 'SILLY STAMPS'.

What, you might well ask, is a 'Silly Stamp'?

A 'Silly Stamp' is an officially issued postage stamp that, when you look at it, makes you think, "This is silly!''

And then, ''What on earth is going on here? What could its designers have possibly been thinking when they came up with this image?"

"And, given that postage stamps (like coins, banknotes, flags, etc) are important vehicles for promotong national images and messages, what were the responsible (sic) postal authorities smoking and/or drinking when they approved this stamp?''

Some examples of 'Silly Stamps' that I have come across on my philatelic travels can be seen on my web-site   Go to 'Stamp Art', then to 'Silly Stamps'.

I am collecting further examples of 'Silly Stamps' for an alt-philatelic exhibition that I will hold end 2017/start2018.

If you have any 'Silly Stamps'  -- preferably in an unused or very good condition -- please can you send them to me (with or without a caption):

Val Herman,

1 Rue de la Vieille Fontaine,

F-11130 Sigean,


All contributions will be acknowledged...and gratefully received.

Thank you! Merci!

The ART has changed its styles, significance, and meaning so many times throughout the history, but it has always been a constant part of humanity and the lives of people. Everybody enjoys the ART - commons and royals, children and adults, blue collars and white collars - the art should not know any borders, limits or restrictions. The ART is capable to fit into any shape and form, to fulfil any expectation, to adapt to be understandable to all and to be enigmatic and mysterious. The ART has a duty to enhance the reality, to see the beauty, to recognise diversity, to provoke our thoughts, to call for a rebellion, to punch and shake us.

Please give your view of the art and send us your MAIL ART.

Technique: Any
Format: please choose A6 (10cm X 15cm), A5 (15cm X 21cm) or A4 (21cm X 29cm), if possible.
