Bagpipes on stamps

Last week someone in one of the online stamp discussion groups I belong to asked about accordions on stamps. Mmmmmmmmmm. Interesting topic.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any sites that were devoted to that particular musical instrument.

WHAT I did find was a great site about bagpipes on stamps which was featured in an interesting New York Times article, "Stamp Collecting in an E-Mail Age," earlier this year.

I particularly liked the stamp shown above. Apparently, penguins and bagpipers get along famously.

For some interesting stamps (and information about bagpipes) check out Oliver Seeler's~ Universe of Bagpipes.
