Postage stamps are a nostalgic reminder of a time when letters were one of the main means of communication. They are also contain a piece of history, in the form of a historical figure, place or thing, and that’s why collectors love them so much.

Kenyan digital artist Jacque Njeri has launched a project on her Instagram that showcases stamps in a very special way. In a series she calls the ‘Stamp Series’, she redesigns old African stamps and introduces a unique design that gives the stamp extra character and oomph.

Here are the images from the Stamp Series.
