Cats invade stamps

Cat stamps offered by Australia Post

It’s not enough for cats to be taking over our internet, they’re now invading our stamp collecting hobbies! Apparently the Cats stamp issue is being released today. Personally I’m not a fan of this particular design, but it really is quite novel what has started appearing on stamps these days.

Just a few days ago, Google was showing off their Google Doodle for celebrating the Penny Black, which was first issued on May 1 1840, though actually only started officially being used on May 6. I’ll admit I spent a good hour at work reading about the various stamps that came after this as well… oops.

What a way we’ve come in design since then though!
