Vintage Stamps for World Cup Countries

My life the last week has revolved almost entirely around football and the World Cup. Posting photos and stories from South Africa on Twenty Ten, arranging the last-minute details for my flight to Johannesburg on Saturday morning and watching as many matches as I can handle. I enjoyed this artistic approach to the World Cup fever by Karen Horten. She gathered together vintage stamps from the countries: “Most of the postage stamps below are from between 1900 through the mid-1930s, with a few as recent as the early 1970s.”

These are some of my favorites, but there are lots more here (via constantwanderlust: dailydesigndiscoveries)
