Hi there, my name is Scott Thomson. I am so passionate about the postal system that I set up the website Positively Postal which is here to illustrate all things connected to that system and serves to promote such examples of postal culture and its positive benefits from all around the world. Having collected (and accumulated!) stamps now for over thirty years my main area of interest lies in the modern philately of Great Britain which with the many new issues is exciting, colourful, vibrant and constantly changing.
The Internet and e-mail may be great but nothing really beats the feeling of actually receiving a real letter or a postcard from somebody, be that from the other side of town or the other side of the world and if we don’t use the postal system then we will lose it! Therefore, I send out mail on a daily basis either in the form of mailart, a great creative release ; postcards (www.postcrossing.com) or from sales in the Positively Postal eBay shop.
I am always happy to receive post from all over the world so please feel free to send in a card/message to me at this address:
P.O. Box 477,
Some Of My Highlights
- Six foot+ dalek filled in with used Dr Who and dalek stamps
- Terence Stamp
- Cigarette Vending Machine to vend art
From the perforations of the paper, the designs on the stamps themselves to the cancellations and other postal frankings given, I get ideas on how I can create “big” art using such small pieces of inspirational paper.
