Postage Stamp Designs

Graphics students designed these stamps.  Students in upper level art can sometimes choose their medium...in this case, most chose gouache, but one chose pastels (the giraffe).   In preparation, I showed them a slide show of all kinds of stamps.  The post mistress also shared some catalogs on stamp collecting with me, USA Philatelic, a really good resource.  Since then, that particular post office closed as a result of budget cuts. Sad.  Buy stamps, send things via US Mail and save the postal service!
