  1. I think postage stamp when viewed as an art form strictly falls in the realms of Micro-Miniature variety. An artist should try to express his art within the given space. This trend of issuing bigger and bigger miniature sheets defies logic to me.I take it as a failure for a miniature artist trying to become a wall-poster artist. Most of the times failing in both forms.

    • you are absolutely right, the miniature sheets issued now a days are in no meaning miniature, some are such a large that it becomes hard to collect and store.
