amprantino sent me this wonderful set issued by Greece on March 16, 2018 titled "Science and Art Through the Microscope".

Image

The stamps show images captured through the microscope of Maria Lambropoulou, Associate Professor of Histology-Embryology at the Democritus University of Thrace Medical School.

From Hellenic Post website:
“Pathologists have a very important job to do, as they help diagnose and treat diseases and spend endless hours studying human tissue. Oftentimes, though their labours may seem solitary and unexciting, the images that appear before their eyes are simply amazing, particularly when the cells unintentionally form images and scenes that are as beautiful as any painting hanging in a gallery.”
Dr. Lambropoulou also shares images on the MedinArt website, where some of the images used on the stamps are described: https://www.medinart.eu/works/maria-lambropoulou/

"The Flowers of Our Inner World"
Intestinal glands, PAS staining, magnification x200
Image

"Captive Butterfly, Symbol of Freedom and Transformation"
Renal corpuscle, Hematoxylin & Eosin staining, magnification x200
Image

“Double heart”
Kidney section, renal tubules. Hematoxylin & Eosin staining, magnification x200
Image

Visit the website to see the other images.

Thank you very much Andreas for this wonderful addition to my collection!! :D :D :D

After a couple of busy weeks at work, I'm trying to play catch up with the piles scattered on my desk.

In the last week or so I've received some nice items in my mailbox.

KevinHedley helped me out with an eBay purchase for my exhibit, and forwarded the items to me in this great cover franked with International Post stamps:

Image

Thanks very much for the assist Kevin!! :D :D

Time to show the amazing stuff received from Jean.

First at all: the cover, which is itself already a great addition to my collections

Image

The content is really wonderful, starting with Christmas stamps and postmarks, most of them filling gaps in my collection

Image

then a very special stuff related to Christmas: the 2018 Santa stationery from Canada Post.

A short explanation:
Children from all over the world can write to Santa at North Pole, H0H 0H0, Canada and volunteers at Canada Post will send a letter back. The post card is for children's letters that arrive after Christmas.

Image

Image

Image

If you would like more information about previous years, you can search through the archives of The Canadian Philatelist at https://www.rpsc.org/tcp/index.php searching articles under the author "N R Bocker" (Nick R Bocker - a pseudonym for someone!).

Thank you Jean for this incredible addition to my collection!!

Regards,
Marco

Last but not least, a terrific cover arrived from BrewDog, containing swap items for my topical collections:

Franked with 2018 Europa stamps
Image

Image

Image

From the Lithuanian Post website:
“It is very symbolic that for the first time Lietuvos Paštas celebrating 100th anniversary of its activity this year paid tribute to 100 people who live not only in Lithuania but also throughout the world and whose works bring together Lithuania of the world rather than commemorating some historical personalities. This is a special thanks for strengthening and fostering Lithuanianness and a reminder that the boundaries of our nation are much broader than those drawn on the map”, said Asta Sungailienė, CEO of Lietuvos Paštas, at the presentation of the postage stamp block “Lithuania of the World”.
Thank you Vytautas!! :D :D

It is actually a transitional sheet - there is a dog printed over the $5 pig in iridescent ink.

The ingredients appear in the selvage of the sheet.

The Singapore Stone is a fragment of a large sandstone slab which originally stood at the mouth of the Singapore River. The large slab, which is believed to date back to at least the 13th century and possibly as early as the 10th or 11th century, bore an undeciphered inscription. Recent theories suggest that the inscription is either in Old Javanese or in Sanskrit, which suggested a possibility that the island was an extension of the Majapahit civilization in the past. (from Wikipedia)

Along with the telegraph set, Joel sent a bonus orchid souvenir sheet from Malaysia:
