NEW Artistamp Book

From the beginning of postage stamps, women have been honored in imagery. Today, women make their own artistamps, artist made stamps, using various types of images and styles. This book is about 30 female artists who represent the growing numbers of women working within the confines of the stamp format. Individual artistamp histories, including some of the techniques used, are revealed in the biographies accompanying the art. We hope to enlighten and encourage future generations of artists to make artistamps. Foreword by C. Mehrl Bennett.

The artists included are: Altschul, Antic-Ham, Banana, Baracchi, Bauwens, Bennett, Boschi, Cope, Cornyn-Selby, Davis, Dittberner, Hinchcliff, Kent, Lakner, Lamanova, Lloyd, Mailarta, Marlowe, Mary Anne, Nikoltsou, Patterson, Podob, Ronchetti, Rosenberg, Spathi, Stetser, Tavenner, TicTac, Wassink, and Weimer.

Purchase a copy at TropiChaCha Press Store either in print or downloadable.

For artistamp collectors there is a commemorative artistamp issue. Contact me for more about availability.
