When Marc Alcock bought a collection of world stamps on eBay for $5, he decided to create a world map using the stamp from each country as the country.

The stamp world map by Marc Alcock must have taken some serious time and patience, but the map came out looking cool and colorful. The stamp map has all the countries in their place, and it’s a cool use for a generally unused item. The poor otherwise forgotten stamp has found a new life!
