I like all the castellations and triangle shapes extant indeed.

That Sweedish stamp has always intrigues me.

Thank you for the fashion lesson as well.

Whoops, just now found it. Appears you have to do it at the time you reply to a thread. But what if you want to follow (subscribe) to a thread and NOT comment, is there a way to do that?

A different kind of pattern, that of the Rose window in the Lausanne Cathedral. The team of Peter von Arras is credited with painting the glass of the Rose, 1235. (Switzerland, 1974)

The stamp is hexagonal in shape but is designed to resemble a cube. The sheet also has a honeycomb outline but visually consists cubes (except the hexagon with the Correos logo).

Another design from Austria. (If you look at it from a distance, you'll see what it's supposed to be; just as the Columbus design made of raindrops "12/5/2010" is at first a ?.)
