Handwritten Stamps

This set of stamps was in answer to the RSA Royal Mail stamps Competition brief for 2012. It asked for six stamps that embraced 'the art of letterwriting' and encouraged people to forego email in favour of sending a hand written letter. Using a dip pen and ink on tea stained paper helped to achieve an old look. The phrases are based on a quote by Norbet Platt that describes the different emotions associated with the letter writing process. To accompany the stamps set, I designed a presentation pack and First Day Cover.
