TAM Rubberstamp Archive

The TAM Rubberstamp Archive started in 1983 by sending out the first sheets into the network Ruud knew then, and is now over 32 years old. Still more contributions come in and only rarely the normal public can get a glimpse of what the archive contains. Several documentations about this archive are previously made, and online a large catalogue is available. (You can find an overview of all important details mentioned in previous publications (see also www.iuoma.org).

Donation by J.F. Chapelle - France


The parcel that J.F Chapelle (France) sent me was well packed. It is a whole performance to just open it. I needed some sissors too as you can see below.



The box was stamped with one of J.F.'s stamps. All I have to do now is open the boz and discover what is inside.




As you can see, a wonderful box with two original rubberstamps in it. Will be tempting to use them for the first time (or keep them like they arrived.
