i heart old stamps!

here is part of my stamp collection - the purple and orange ones. yes i collect old stamps (among a plethora of various ephemera). and yes i organize pretty much everything by color. i have a serious obsession with old school design - that gorgeous detail. why does "contemporary design" have to be so utilitarian-bland and ugly? instead of severe patriotic images why can't we spice things up like hungary with its hot air ballon? there are so many unanswered questions in this life.

{the following countries represent clock-wise from top left: germany, hungary, new zealand, poland, mexico, czechoslovakia (before it was czech republic) & india.}
