Novel Colored Postcards Made With Cancelled Stamps
Fashioning artistic postcards with cancelled postage stamps is all in the day’s work for an obscure Chinese artisan of Formosa. He sketches his scenes and then fills them in with parts of stamps, to make truly colorful pictures. Two of his best pieces of work show a lady riding in a rickshaw and a lady riding a caribou. Exceedingly intricate designs can be worked out with the stamps and the art introduced by the Chinese is destined to become quite a fad.
