Parallel Cultural Postage

print  /  illustration  /  fall 2014

Postage suite of drop cap stamps and postcards inset with a historical fusion of eastern and western cultures. Drop cap illustrations and postage materiality are based on the decorated initials of the illuminated manuscripts, the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels. This aesthetic is united with China's concurrent golden age of poetry, where unity was key.

"Unity is strength...when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved."

— Mattie Stepanek
