The Stamp Art & Postal History of
Michael Thompson and Michael Hernandez de Luna
A book of Fake Stamps (ISBN: 0967757215) by those two Chicago artists that has the U.S. authorities pissed off, the art world laughing and smiling, and their mothers worrying about the boys being shuffled off to prison. Adult entertainment at its best, shocking, outrageous, and provocatively delightful--a must see! Lavishly illustrated in full color and complete with essays from leading authorities in both the stamp and art worlds. Sure to offer hours of viewing pleasure and provide a welcome addition to any coffee table. There is both a Hardcover (limited to 200) and a Softcover Edition.
