Cool Stamps

via io9, there is a super cool set of international stamps, primarily from the 50s and 60s. The complete set is displayed on Karen Horton's Flickr site. Stamps really were cool. Are they still? I'm not sure the "sticker" version stands up quite as well as the classic version.

A few of my favorites:

I love owls...

and maybe cats/kittens...

These two are for my husband, the space geek!

I vaguely recall that one of my dad's friends passed along a huge collection of international stamps to me when I was a kid. But in my many moves since then, I am pretty sure I got rid of them. Too bad. It would've been fun to do something like this with them.
