Leather Goods for the Well Dressed Philatelist

While shopping in the men's department of Nordstrom, I came across the three items pictured above - man's wallet, business and credit card holders - all made from handcrafted leather and emblazoned with U.S. postage stamps.

Created by Jack Spade, a write-up on his website states, "We created the Stamp Printed Leather small goods by tiling a collection of stamps purchased from a philatelist's estate. The photographed collage was then printed in the UK on a fine grain leather. They are soft, pliable and long-lasting. "

Be forewarned! These items are not cheap. $145 for the wallet, $110 for the credit card holder, $95 for the business card holder.
