    SAN MARINO Flowers MS : These days stamp designers are using
    colors like Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol etc. And mainly computers to
    manipulate images, I suppose. This takes away the Art-of-the-Stamp
    so unique to postage stamps. Where to use these colorful miniature sheets as paradoxically the size of the cover remains almost the same , their weight is getting littler & our mail bag is emptier.
