These are a few of the items in a collection titled "Remnants of Communication", as the stamp is the last bit remaining between sender and receiver.
These extraordinary 3-dimensional pieces are made with genuine miniature pieces of art - an art that is sadly disappearing from our mailboxes as electronic communication surpasses traditional post mail.
Each stamp on its own is a small work of art, yet interestingly, when linked - or hand-stitched - to another, the stamp does not fade away. Instead the stamp appears to intensify in color and design, and you are drawn in for a closer look.
Used stamps from the early 1930's through the 1980's were used in all these items.
