"As I understand it, all the different groups are always open and always ongoing.  The cat one will always keep up, right?  So, we just choose a person in the cat group and send that person some cat mail art.  Right?  "

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…
