The King and Queen
I popped into the post office to send off a package today and to pick up a book of stamps.
The guys at our super podunk post office always laugh at me because I ask for "pretty stamps" and make them haul out the whole drawer full
so I can choose.
(Don't worry, there's NEVER anyone waiting behind me.)
This gorgeous set just knocked me over! I would make a quilt out of this. I would buy this if it was a poster. I would buy it AND frame it. Hey, maybe it IS a poster!
Using images from 18th-century French playing cards as reference, artist Jeanne Greco created the stamp art. I'll be looking her up, let me tell ya. WOW.
(Added later: Ok, yeah, she's way cool. Take a look at her creations. http://www.caffegrecodesign.com/cgd-homepage.html)
What a happy, unexpected spot - smack dab in a day full of errands!
