One Stamp at a Time - Art book by Margarete Miller
"One Stamp at a Time" is a collection of photos of collage art, all created with postage stamps as an important element that completes each piece. It's an image-heavy photo book with very little text.
Old postage stamps are my favorite kind of vintage ephemera to collage with. When I pay attention to their unique characteristics—size, shape, color, design, theme, quality, postmarkings, and age - I can find many ways to incorporate them into my own collage artwork.
This little lookbook is a collection of the different ways I use stamps. In assembling these photos, I hope to give you ideas for making your own collage art with vintage ephemera and demonstrate the many ways how a stamp or two brings it all together.
