I want to post something unique for tonight, and I dig into my "sources" folder, there you can found thousand and thousand images, old papers, textures I have scan over the years... I was looking for something for the vintage section... And found this stamps catalogue, so I want to share the story behind it...
 
I guess it was in 2002 or 2003, I lived in middle of France, Clermont-Ferrand... I need to do a stamp and someone tell me this guy was the best. His shop looks like in Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. At this time, letterpress hasn't made its coming out yet, so, seeing old metal fonts was something for me... This guys keep all the stamps he had composed for clients, and told me the shop was in his familly for generations... I ask him if I can shoot the shop, and as I was really passionate, he shows me this old catalog of stamps, and he offers it to me, saying it would be in good hands ! And it is !
 
So, if you look each page in details you may found compositions that I used for wall stickers... If you found which one, email me the sticker name and I will gave you a special discount code ! Work only for the first right anwer !
