I have found myself hiding my work and not sharing it with the world. Well that is not the spirit of Craftster, now is it?! I am going to try to make an effort to share and appreciate the work of you all more.

So I start here. This is a series of stamps that I donated for use to a letterboxing event held at a library. I tried to select a range of libraries from various areas and various times in history. I got exhausted after 6 and also had a time limit, so I stopped, but I have so many more library stamps that I would love to make that I may add to the series some day. Especially since they are going to another event next year, so I have time to add in some!

I got exhausted after 6

I'm exhausted vicariously just looking at all the detail! All those windows, the tiny ladder on the Celsus (I think) oneamazing.

The crispness of the images you manage to get is stunning. Beautiful work all around, and yes, the archaeology nerd in my is giggling at the Library of Alexandria. I would LOVE to see a post on your carving process some time. I've wanted to try stamp carving for a long time, and amusingly, Letterboxing is why! I currently have a self-logo that I hand-draw when I go geo-caching, but I need a personal stamp to match for branching off into letterboxing. I know there's at least one near me. Smiley
