More Beautiful Lithops Stamps

As if collecting Lithops wasn't eccentric enough, now I'm collecting stamps of Lithops. Good grief....

These lovely stamps hail from Benin. They were issued August 30, 1997, and are part of a set of six. I cannot find the name of the artist. From the left, we have Lithops fulviceps, Lithops helmutii, and Lithops aucampiae, all in bloom.
The other three in the set show a Stapelia, a Faucaria, and a Conophytum. If you know more about the history of the set, or who created the lithographs, leave a comment!


  1. Don't feel bad Marla, I could easily get into collecting stamps of plants, as I am a "collector" at heart. I did collect coins when I was a kid, and now I collect plants, and lots of them. The stamps are very beautiful and of course have a special interest to us lithops lovers. Thanks for sharing them.

  2. Your stamps (and plants) are beautiful, Marla. thank you for sharing them with us.

  3. Bob and Gail, thank you, I'm glad you like the stamps, too!
