nifty pencil shavings

Sam Winston’s pencil shavings image is visual poetry. I’m not sure if it’s an actual pencil drawing (which would be mad crazy) or if it’s a photograph (or scan) of pencil shavings.

beautiful stamp

I just purchased 110 two-cent Washington cancel-marked stamps (1894-1898) for $4.04 (shipping included) on ebay. It’s a wonderfully classic stamp.
