The stamps of ap­proval

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS - AMINA McCAULEY

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.
