The stamps of approval
STAMP lovers can now add to their collection the imprint of the Salamanca Square precinct.
Kaye Green is a Hobartbased artist who created Tiger Tracks, the 200 unique stamps that can be collected across Tasmania in various businesses in major tourism attractions and places off the beaten track.
Yesterday she launched the latest selection alongside Salamanca Square Inc, the first set of stamps to exist in a cluster.
Ms Green said she was approached by Salamanca Square Inc with the proposal of designing the stamps, and Parklane Espresso, Rendezvous Cafe, San Churro, Honey Badger, Plato’s, Machine Laundry Cafe, the Hobart Bookshop and Salamanca Fresh jumped on board.
Salamanca Square Inc chairwoman Lynne Cooke said the stamps would become an added incentive for visitors and locals alike to explore the precinct.
“It will bring people in and people are the lifeblood of anywhere and anything,” she said.
Visitors can take their stamp book or paper into any of the eight businesses and receive the stamp free of charge.
