My non-fiction project (4)

Stamp collecting is one of my favourite ways of finding space and tranquility in the clamour of everyday life. Lately I’ve been working on the Arabian Nights as a topic, partly because the stamps are lovely to look at, and partly because the history of the tales as a body of literature is fascinating.

This month I’ve put together an entry to the All About Stamps one-page display competition. Although it’s a very condensed version of the material I’ve gathered on the Arabian Nights overall, I hope it gives you a flavour of this absorbing topic, and I hope you enjoy the stamps.
