artistamp world home of art you can lick

It is believed the first artistamp was produced in the early 1940's. Since then, several hundred artists have created miniature works of art in the postage stamp format. A series of articles is available to provide the reader with an overview of the history and development of artistamps.

Artistamp World documents and illustrates ARTISTAMPS from around the world. We strive to inform and to encourage communication between artists, 'Cinderella' stamp collectors, curators, critics and patrons of the art in postage stamp format.

Artistamps are communications that transcends the boundaries of art, culture, politics and global networking.

Artistamps are The Glass Slipper of Cinderellas and a marriage of fine art and philately.

This site is under development and came online January 14 2015. It is not our aim to compete with other sites but rather to offer another venue to expand the awareness of "ARTISTAMPS".

While this site can never be fully comprehensive because of the ongoing production of artistamps and related events it can provide you with an encyclopedic collection of works, writings and networking opportunities. Please come back often, as we will be constantly adding new images and information.
