The Portland Stamp Company The Portland Stamp Company

Box set No. 21-30

The Artist Series is an ongoing collaboration with invited designers, artists, and writers who create original work for an unusual form: the poster stamp.

We started this as an experiment — to not only collaborate with people whose work we admire, but to also push ourselves to make things we wouldn’t otherwise have tried.

As the series continued to grow and evolve – and as individual stamps began to sell out, we decided to box our last remaining sheets into sets of ten.

This set contains the following sheets:

No. 21: Sarah Horowitz
No. 22: Sarah Wildfang
No. 23: Matthew Rose
No. 24: Martin Venezky
No. 25: Oana Befort (sold out)
No. 26: Rick Valicenti
No. 27: Jesse LeDoux
No. 28: Jim Riswold
No. 29: Katherine Bradford (sold out)
No. 30: Tré Seals (sold out)

For each stamp, we conduct a brief interview with the artist. Those are collected in print for the first time in the form of an exclusive, signed, full-color 36-page info book about each stamp in the collection. Packaged in an archival keepsake box.

We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed making them!
