I am going through some stuff I have had buried away for years, and came across this. I have this small collection of 8 sheets in a Westminster millenium album. I always thought they were cinderella/bogus stamps. Checked today, and much to my amazement, they are listed and priced in Scott.

The sheets measure 9½ x 6¼ inches approx. The sheets and stamps are made up by arranging tiny photographs that when viewed from distance, combine to form a single larger image. Very unusual.



Gambia #2179-Princess Diana.






Grenada Grenadines #2270-Pope John Paul II 80th Birthday.





Guyana #3461-Washington.

Here is the website of Robert Silvers, the man who invented the technique. The site has many examples and interesting background on its development:
