I wanted to enjoy stamp artwork without a magnifying glass, without trapping these great little pieces of art in rarely seen binders. I started to blow them up and thought of Past Postage. Vintage postage stamps, meticulously scanned, cleaned, enlarged and printed on a premium archival canvas using professional equipment. The canvas is given a protective UV coating and stretched and stapled over handmade wooden frames of kiln dried poplar. Smaller pieces like this one are stretched over a half inch thick piece of high quality birch ply. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang.

This canvas print is of the one penny Western Samoa engraved postage stamp of 1935. The stamp features a view of Apia, the largest city and capital of modern day Samoa. Palm trees and thatch roofed homes comprise this delightful beach scene.

The face of this canvas measures 9 x 10 inches (22.8 x 25.4 cm). It is a sample from a series of 20 pieces in this size. Larger sizes are available, including one made 15 x 17.5 inches (38.1 x 44.5 cm). If you don't see it among my other Etsy listings please inquire.

Thank you.
