This canvas print is of a West German 130 pfennig postage stamp from 1975. The stamp features a row of brew tanks. There are over 1300 commercial breweries in Germany and most of them still follow the Reinheitsbebot of 1434 (or so - it depends on who you believe) of what ingredients are allowed in the fermentation process. It was the world's oldest food quality regulation before its repeal in 1987. A relative's husband grew up in a small East German town that makes a good beer. The beer is called Radeberger and now through the miracle of distribution I can buy a six pack of it at my local corner store here in San Francisco.

The face of this canvas measures 10 x 8 inches (25.4 x 20.3 cm). From a limited run of 20 for this image in this size. The image comes from a series of 23 stamps that are similar in graphic style and will start to be listed here shortly. Larger sizes are available and a discount is available on a set of three. If you don't see these listed among my other Etsy listings please inquire.

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. The perforations of the stamps are gallery wrapped unto the sides of the frame, making additional framing unnecessary. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang. This is all done under one roof by one person.

Thank you for visiting - and if you like this piece I have many more in my store.
