their artistic venture, Thompson and Hernandez de Luna have turned philately on its head and, in the process, have been repeatedly warned to cease and desist by inspectors from the Post Office. But readers can enjoy the richly comic parodies and social commentary implicit in this renegade art without the danger of suffering any consequences.Among the wide-ranging subjects included in this collection are politics, religion, sex and disasters. In their never-ending quest for the outrageous, they have created bogus stamps from a score of countries from Japan to South Africa, from India to Norway. Their art forms are splendid counterfeits of truly global proportions.Their work has been shown in museums across the country and has also received the stamp of approval from the press.
