ABOUT ODD SHAPED POSTAGE STAMPS
Gone are the days that all postage stamps were rectangular or square pieces of paper with some interesting image, the country name and a nominal value. Many countries all over the world have issued some really uniquely and odd shaped stamps.
For example, the Canadian culinary history featured in a booklet of PermanentTM domestic stamps of different shapes and forms, dishing up the origins of five delicious Canadians desserts and takes you on a tasty trip from coast to coast.
