Jimghad When exactly did Europe become interested? Do you mean presently?
I am the younger generation – I am 30 years young 🙂 Yes I understand the supply side but I am also an artist (a painter to be exact) and sometimes I think that’s what makes me good at being a philatelist. What if we could Save the Stamps, as it were; maybe it is as simple as becoming more creative about it? Like a new look or even a new way to showcase them? What if we are able to change the educational curriculum to teach about stamps and the history/ geography to follow? Lest we Forget, Remember?
I love my family’s collection of 1850 -1950 but it seems the designs changed after the 50’s and I personally do not like the way they are designed. I believe I am a ‘naturalist’ (art term) and the styles from then on become too ‘abstract’, I begin to lose interest here. I’ve become a bit more creative and because I am an artist, I have the ability.
If I can figure out how to post an image to show you guys what I can do, and if you like it, maybe you’ll be able to help me understand more?
Thanks for reading!
