Here are some photographs of some of the nicest, lest damaged and most colourful. I wanted to organise them in numbers and then colours. Letters with two stamps, some with three. Gradual colour changes from pale cerise through to deep umber.
I particularly like the landscape stamp, it makes me think about the person who was sending the letter must have been in a hurry, maybe replying to an important letter, paying a bill, maybe they slipped, or they were on a train. Everything about the way the stamps have been handled, organised and stuck tells a little story.
Here I find the variety of franc marks and their positioning very interesting. Again it tells a story, but this time about the Clerk, their accuracy is telling, what type of day were they having?
