In: from Spain and Japan
From Eva I received this wonderful shaped stamp from Spain, showing a dragonfly. See how delicate the wings are, emphasized by the way the stamp was cut out!
The stamp on the right is special, too: before the naked eye the king's background looks shining silver, but the scanner's eye turned this into the colours of the Spanish flag!
The stamps traveled to me, along with a kind message, on the back side of this postcard:
This Samurai cat has been designed by Hana from Japan, from whom I've received this philatelic monkey.
Thank you very much, Eva!
