AAA Editions is proud to announce the publication of James Warren Felter's book, Artistamps/Francobolli d'Artista. James Warren Felter has created, researched and collected artistamps since 1973. He organized exhibitions in North America, Europe and Russia and is often a consultant and lender. Currently Director of the Jas Cyberspace Museum, Felter lives in West Vancouver, Canada with his wife and cat.
Artistamps rebel against the monopoly of governmental emissions, giving life with satirical, playful or lyrical intents to an alternative philately dominated by the most unrestrained creativity. This volume reconstructs the history of the art form, from the work of pioneers Michael V. Hitrovo and Karl Schwesig to the conceptual experiments of Yves Klein and Fluxus artists, and the planetary diffusion through the open network of Mail Art with the multicoloured emissions of imaginary islands and virtual countries. The book is illustrated with hundreds of artistamps by more than fifty artists most representative of the field. Preface by Vittore Baroni, with special advice from Anna Banana.

From a bloodstained Superman flying over a 16th-century image of Indians being tortured and killed by the Spanish conquistadors, as well as a smiling Mickey Mouse, looking on as Columbus's soldiers cut off the hands of the Caribbean natives, this codex's tale of conquest, colonization, and border crossing now has the best kind of distribution.
