Philatelic Atrocities

Our Chief Perforating Officer Niko Courtelis is also a butcher of stamps. Cut and shockingly reassembled, these stamp collages have scandalous fun with the often mundane world of stamps. Philatelic Atrocities takes these paper Frankensteins and turns them into a lookbook of freaks, oddities, printing, and design. Philatelic Atrocities contains seventeen full-color details and reproductions of Niko Courtelis’s stamp collages. A brief introduction by Courtelis explains why it’s OK to chop up stamps. 16 page book 5.875 × 9 inches published by Kat Ran Press.
