Postcard collecting by deltiologists became very popular at the turn of the century. An interesting and very creative artistic postcard is a montage stamp postcard. Various images were usually formed completely or partially from used, cut-out stamps, and then an artistic expression complementing the stamp mosaic was painted in the scene. Because of the originality of this procedure, this postcard is not only unique but truly one of a kind. In this case, the fisherman’s postcard is highly desired not only by a collector but also by a snowy white egret!
