Abstract Expressionist Stamps

My grandfather was an avid collector of both stamps and coins, and as a kid, I remember spending hours browsing through his enormous collection. I have now inherited the stamp collection and although I rarely pull out the albums, each time the post office announces a new collection, I take it as a gentle reminder. I love the details in each tiny piece.

Abstract Expressionists stamps available through the US Post Office here.

Love this post. My grandfather was into coins, for Christmas we got mint sets and when he returned from his wordly travels he would give me all his pocket change. I thought it was exotic treasure! All these years later, I still keep them tucked away, my treasured memories of him.
