The Archive Series is a bibliographic celebration of graphic design archives and collections. The first title in the new series is devoted to the design of postage stamps. Sourced from the collections of stamp design experts Iain Follett and Blair Thomson, the book celebrates the brilliance of postage stamp design from around the world.
Postage stamps are the forgotten gems of graphic design. This is odd when you contemplate the high levels of aesthetic and technical qualities required to produce graphics for a tiny scrap of paper with perforated edges.
