>Dear Honorable Post Master General: I want to thank you for allowing my
>Spacescapes Art to be made into stamps.  One I had made is my space art
>logo that I  have applied for trademark on at USPTO.  I also had two
>other images made. They are gorgeous "works of art " stamps. Your idea
>should continue. It certainly could be a wonderful source of revenue for
>you. Think of how a whole new branch of collecting can evolve from this
>- "Limited Edition Art Stamps." The sky is the limit for the USPS with
>this I think.  It gives new meaning to collecting stamps. They easily
>could be priceless someday. Think if Renoir and Rembrandt could have had
>stamps made from their paintings? Sincerely and hopefully, Cecil
