Extracts from #xtremephilately exhibit at Stampex at the BDC 2022

#xtremephilately is the art of taking a stamp and finding the object, landscape, person on the stamp in real life and then snapping a photo and sharing it on social media using the hashtag #xtremephilately

There are 2 ways you can take your collecting to the xtreme!

  1. Take a stamp you love and seek out the IRL (in real life) version of what it depicts

  2. See something IRL, and then find a stamp with it on it

It takes some planning either way but the results are xtreme!

Here are some examples to inspire you!

Why not give it a go today?!

Have you taken any #xtremephilately photos? Share them in the comments below!

If you could take any #xtremephilately photo on earth (or in the universe!), what would you aspire to take?

Do you have a fav stamp? How could you make it xtreme?
