Art of Austria

Last week, I visited the Kunst Haus Wien museum in Vienna. The two exhibits I saw each featured Austrian stamps featuring pieces I saw in person. And lucky for me, some of the stamps were sold in the museum shop.

I don't have a working scanner, so I tried taking pictures of these. The quality isn't great, but nevertheless, I wanted to show you these stamps.






The Hundertwasser stamps have gold and silver (colored) shiny foil on them.

More New Countries











In 2010 the Netherlands Antilles, a group of islands off the northern coast of South America, split into 3 separate entities: Saint Martin, Curacao, and Caribbean Netherlands. These are the first stamps issued by each of these new countries. They show maps of the islands, their flags, and on the Caribbean Netherlands stamp, the Queen of the Netherlands is shown.
