The Right to Dream Differently

This, I’ll confess, is my favorite stamp, which is why I spent some time hunting down Hundertwasser’s original submission transparency, which captures all the detail in the stamp on a larger, more vibrant scale than the finished product.

Of course, the die proof is a close second to the transparency. Every line is crisp and the colors are vibrant beyond compare with the stock issue. (Note the small alignment marks in the corners, not present in the final issue).
