What are Artistamps?

Artistamps are one of the most difficult to understand topics ever. Because there are many perspectives that can be applied, when you begin to study the complexities of artistic stamps. The perspectives come from a great number of directions. For example, the perspective of philately (the in-depth, or 'scientific' approach to the study of stamps); or, the perspective of the casual stamp collector enhancing their hobby by adding specific topical forms of art -even artists- to their hobby; or, from the perspective of a mail art purist. You may look at them as we do. From the perspective of stamps as miniature reproductions of fine art by highly talented artists, documenting their works in a unique form; namely, artistamps. Serving to promote and advertise the skills of the artist and the artwork itself. And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg!
