Stamp Ephemera

These stamps are in the Karl Kasten photograph collection [scrapbook] in the exhibit The Chinese in California 1850-1925 at the Library of Congress. I am not able to get a direct link to these beautiful stamps so all the links go to the front page of the exhibit. From there click Search by Keyword and enter Karl Kasten stamps. You will get a short list. Click Gallery View and you will see these. Clicking on them will take you to a medium resolution image. Click higher resolution and save that one.

Karl Kasten is a painter, printmaker in Berkeley, California. A very personal form of Abstract Expressionism characterizes his work. Known for his collographs. A collograph is printed on an etching press and developed by adding materials to the print plate using acrylic glue.
