Glassblowing Stamps

You have just *got* to take a look at the website that Richard Samuel (using the amusing email address of puntyfun@yahoo.com) has created to show every known postal stamp, throughout the world, of glassblowing and glassblowers!! He also has a very interesting slideshow of these stamps, which you can run through manually, or at timed intervals (5, 10, or 15 seconds). His website shows no less than 30 postal stamps:
