Thanks, Val, as you know, the size of a slide frame is a bit too small for my ol'eyes and hands, so I no longer create any artsy slides, but if anyone wishes slides, let me know here, and I'll send out a few for making "slide art"!

Wellcome back, Katerina.

I had wrongly, and sadly, assumed that this Group was dead.

I hope you can bring it  back to life

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!
