Here is the next set of Pantone cards.

I love this stamp release. The stamps show Aboriginal art featuring stories of the Seven Sisters, which are drawn from the Seven Sisters/Pleidades constellation. There are stories from around the world that draw from this same constellation.

So these additional cards are on cards that reference the Pleiades.

Three are older representations of the constellation (the first card is a stretch - the Pleiades forms part of Taurus). The next three are on NASA photographs of the Pleiades (first card) and other nebula.

My first attempt. I wasn’t planning to but I came across this postcard a few weeks ago and thought it would be a good match. It’s a picture taken by the photographer Elliott Erwitt back in 1955 in south of France. Sadly, the cancellation came out poorly. :baguette_bread:

Hello @Bastet44 :wave:

You’re in the international part of the forum where speaking English is required.

The postmark is official, I’ve requested it through mail. I’ll send you a private message giving you all the details.

I’m so happy how beautiful they turned out to be.
I wonder what ink they use they are so bold and nice not faded and hard to see like often the case with German postmarks.







I’m ready now for the D&D issue

I still have to photograph most of them.
I hope to get around to it this weekend.
They come from eBay, from collection liquidations.

I recently joined the postcard Instagram and that’s where I found out what maxicards were. Earlier this year, the USPS released manatee stamps (I have always adored manatees and even have one tattooed!) and jumped on the opportunity to do it. I probably have about 15 still to trade/send :see_no_evil: I went a little crazy! I’ve since sent off more to the post master and it feels like sending my children off into the wilderness.
