They are NOT going to get enough subscriptions with their push this November ,so they will try again next year . Then again not enough buyers into the program . Then panic will set in and the search for a buyer will happen but the question that is going to be asked -----did they already overpay for it .

I wonder if they'll tell you which part of the stamp that you own?
- or should I say, which pixel

I bought one share, will be fun to see where they go with this.

I look forward to receiving my one microscopic fibre of magenta :)

I was going through one of my father's albums (New Zealand) and I found this on a page from the April 1949 issue of the Gibbon's Stam Monthly.




The last paragraph, in which SG seem to think there is nothing much special about the stamp, is particularly revealing.

This idea seems to have spread to the art world. I understand that someone (Loc Gouzer) has bought a Banksy for almost $13-million and intends to sell it in 10,000 pieces.

I suspect it began in the art world. I shouldn't call Banksy's gift for facile illustration "art", however.
