design: T. Rathgreb / screen printed

A self-adhesive stamp made of real wood.  Thin sliced Fir, about 0.7mm thickness.  It is so simple that they wanted to make a stamp in Wood, but I am not sure if they really needed this printed pattern, which is hiding natural grain.

0.7ミリの厚さのモミの木で作られた切手。よし、本物の木で切手を作ろう!とシンプルに思いついて作った、という感じですね。せっかくの木目を隠している印刷された白い木目が蛇足なような気もします。やはり切手には紙の質感が一番合っていると思うのはわたしだけでしょうか。
