Durnst presents a spectacular, curated collection of 101 cars on stamps (in fact, there are more than 195 cars and trucks.) See details that you may have never noticed before in these gorgeous images digitally scanned and enlarged several times beyond their actual size.
“There are few things in life greater than a beautiful car. For more than a century, these gorgeous moving pieces of art and engineering have enthralled our senses and occupied our garages. Artists, musicians, and filmmakers have celebrated motor vehicles in every medium imaginable, including the often overlooked and underrated postage stamp.
101 Cars on Stamps is here to bring these tiny works of art to life by enlarging them so that motor vehicle enthusiasts can admire the craft that went into making, not only the machines but also the artwork on the stamps themselves.”
