Notes:
"This is a small book about some imaginary stamps that I engraved for a country that did not exist--a French island enclave in the Mediterranean. Imaginary stamps such as these are often called 'Cinderella' stamps.The book contains five such stamps, each printed directly from the engraved woodblock, together with three pages of text. The book is sewn into card covers with a dark blue paper wrapper, with a label on the front showing one of the stamps printed in blue."--Artist's website, accessed April 25, 2016.
"This conceit was engraved and printed by Andy English in a numbered edition of sixty copies, together with fifteen specials which are lettered A-O and include a set of signed proofs of the wood engravings."--Colophon.
