OK, I thought there was a thread on these, but I can't find it. So maybe it was on the old board and didn't get ported over? Or maybe I put it on another forum (gasp)?
What is a remarque? As a selvage collector, normally I shudder when I see any sort of writing or scribbling on the selvage. There's lots of space in the stamp margin, so why write on the precious selvage? Anyway -- I do make 2 exceptions: autographs and remarques. I don't collect either; too rich for my blood.
However, I do like to collect pictures of remarques! So what's a remarque? It's when an artist draws/paints an extension of the design of the stamp into the selvage, or they may even make a separate illustration on the selvage to complement the stamp design/topic.
I'll try to post a couple each day for your enjoyment...
I believe the artist Ken loved birds. Just an observation.
As far as I know, the bulk of his work is on Duck Stamps. But don't hold me to that, as I don't really follow his career.
Most of the pics I have are remarques on Duck Stamps. But those will be appear much later in this thread, as I acquired the pictures of the Duck Stamp remarques much later. I am posting the pics according to chronological order of downloading them.
There will be a few other artists that will show up later; Ken is not the only one.
