New Issues 2017: Part Ten

Thursday 21st September 2017.

Urban Street Art. Four stamps all at National Rate. I bought two sets yesterday. In a few days, I will post one set to myself.

There is also a premium booklet with four sets of the stamps and photographs of the four designs at their locations (three in Dublin and one in Limerick). The stamps in these booklets are rarely used for genuine mail. They are in essence a souvenir. But on at least one previous occasion, the printing of the stamp has been catalogued as a variety, so I always buy the booklet.

UrbanArt I am not a fan of the concept of “Urban Art”. It seems too close to “Graffiti” for my taste. Maybe I am a Philistine but every time I see a pretentious “Art Lover” praise Urban Street Art, I have an uncontrollable urge to go to his/her home and spray paint on their walls. Let’s see if they also become…Philistines.
