Bay of Islands: Gum Boots
This page is a quick sample of the first "Artistamps" I have made. They are experimental and will hopefully lead to more serious work in the future.
The first issue from Bay of Islands illustrates one of the cultural icons of the area. A unique feature of the Bay of Islands issues is that they are hand printed using copper-plate photogravure. This technique has traditionally been used for official stamp releases and, as far as I know, has never been used for artistamps or cinderellas before.
