Iain Follett, co-founder and design director at Six, has been collecting postage stamps and championing their designs for over ten years, most recently via Instagram @mintneverhinged.
The Archive Series from Unit Editions is a bibliographic celebration of graphic design archives and collections. The first title in this new series is devoted to the design of postage stamps and Iain, with his friend Blair Thomson of Exeter-based design studio Believe in, supplied stamps for the publication from their respective collections. The book commemorates the brilliance of postage stamp designs from around the world.
“Postage stamps are the forgotten gems of graphic design. This is odd when you contemplate the high levels of aesthetic and technical qualities required to produce graphics for a tiny scrap of paper with perforated edges” – Adrian Shaughnessy
