Gavin Potenza

Tiny Showcase features Gavin Potenza this week, with an open-edition "Field Guide to the Stamps of the World." It measures almost 30" tall, and was printed in Providence, Rhode Island by an environmentally-friendly printer. "These stamps were inspired by various elements surrounding the culture of the countries, including the Swiss-born color theorist Johannes Itten, old French Tarot cards, the Brazilian boardwalk Copacabana, German designer Otl Aicher, Mayan patterns, the Swiss Alps, sweater patterns, and op artist Victor Vasarely." Read more about the print here. $12.
