One Stamp at a Time - Art book by Margarete Miller
cover: soft cover
book size: 6"x6"
page count: 50 pages
"One Stamp at a Time" is a collection of photos of collage art, all created with postage stamps as an important element that completes each piece. It's an image-heavy photo book with very little text.
Old postage stamps are my favorite kind of vintage ephemera to collage with. When I pay attention to their unique characteristics—size, shape, color, design, theme, quality, postmarkings, and age—I can find many ways to incorporate them into my own collage art work.
This little lookbook is a collection of the different ways I use stamps. In assembling these photos, I hope to give you ideas for making your own collage art with vintage ephemera, and demonstrate the many ways how a stamp or two brings it all together.

I purchased Margarete’s book as a birthday gift for a friend. She was delighted with the beautiful pictures and endless inspiration. She was also excited about the extra care taken to decorate the envelope. Fast shipping and delivery. Excellent communication. Thanks again, Margarete!
This little book is so full of inspiration! I've used postage stamps in my art journals before, but nothing like this. There are tons of great ideas for using stamps and other ephemera, and lots of close-up photos showing details. "One Stamp at a Time" is a book to refer back to time and again. So happy I bought it!
