French Philately

Friday 05.20.11

For reasons that I don’t need to explain, France has been in the news a lot as of late. And so, with Francophilia on my mind, I thought I would share some images of my many many French stamps.

All this just makes me happy. I found a whole box of those white plaster letters!

This series of photographs by John Cyr are fantastic! They are stunning reminders of an artform and a craft that is nearing obsolescence. Many more to see if you go here. Thanks, yet again, Flavorwire!!

Labels and Tags

Tuesday 04.12.11

I have no idea where this compulsion comes from. But it’s undeniably bad. For years now, probably since I was seven, I’ve been collecting labels and tags of all kinds. This is but a sampling of my arsenal. Once, when I was in Paris, I confess to having ripped three pages of stationery store listings out of the phone book in my hotel room. And the thing is, I am definitely not alone in this pursuit. That said, I’ve promised myself that if this stockpile ever threatens to outgrow the confines of its designated box…out it goes.

We Are Our Envelopes

Tuesday 10.05.10

I wish I could remember where I first came across Andrew Bush’s envelope project. It might have been at An Ambitious Project Collapsing –one of my favorite favorite blogs!  And, in fact, I do believe that is the case. No matter, I had to look through ALL of the photographs. I like that we, as a culture, can be identified and even defined by such a quotidian object. One can easily pick out the envelopes that originated here in the US versus those from other parts.
