postage stamps: USA mementos
Posted in the The Postal Service Forum
#1 Jul 27, 2012
A postage stamp is a small piece of paper that is purchased and displayed on an item of mail as evidence of payment of postage. Typically, stamps are made from special paper, with a national designation and denomination (price) on the face, and a gum adhesive on the reverse side (source: Wikipedia).
Over the years, the United States has printed various kinds and styles of postage stamps, both of modern and vintage variety. For example, the Walt Disney Company released many vintage collectible style postage stamps (i.e., old-fashioned Mickey Mouse stamps).
These stamps celebrate the ornamental value of postage souvenirs and the populist qualities of paper printing. Indeed, postage stamps are not unlike the valuable qualities of baseball cards and movie posters.
Do these souvenir considerations reveal the social reflection of the Hollywood (USA) movie "The Postman" (1997)?
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
