Donald Evans started collecting stamps when he was about six years old. When he was ten, he became preoccupied with building miniature communities. He would build sand towns and houses on the beach. Indoors, he made little villages on top of the family ping-ping table. Quite soon it occurred to Evans that he could make his villages more real by making stamps for them, and by the time he was fifteen he had made 1,000 stamps from about forty different countries. Pictured is a stamped envelope from a country called Domino. As Evans remarks in his portfolio, “This envelope is unaddressed, though sometimes I have addressed them to made-up people from that country or even real people.”
