Postage Stamps

drawings & design by Arta Ozola-Jaunaraja

Stamp collectors are showing a lot of interest about the designing process. Each stamp comes up with a first day issue ceremony, complete with first day envelope and rubber stamp, each of them being a design object as well. Stamps are printed and sold in sheets or blocks. Therefore, the work on the same stamp may consist of several items — stamp itself, block, sheet, envelope and rubber stamp of the first day.
