Favorites for Sunday Stamps

I know I've shown these world poetry day stamps from the United Nations before, however they really are one of my all time favorites. And I sent them to people who hadn't received them before, much to their surprise (which was the whole point).






For more favorite stamps, head over to the links at Sunday Stamps.

And welcome to 2017!

    1. Hi, so sorry about missing the address - I looked at this post 5 times before publishing, and missed it. It is now taken care of.

  2. I have tried many times to write legibly with a fountain pen and fail every time!
    All the best to you in 2017!

  4. Beautifully produced, I like the colouring. I hadn't realised the phrase 'splendour in the grass' was from Wordsworth, ah what education there is in stamps.

    1. Other than Shakespeare, poets seem to be somewhat rare on stamps, although USPS issued a set on 20th century poets in 2011.
