I saw that the post of the Faroe Islands is going to issue fish skin stamps! I don't know if they will smell. But if they do, he smell would be quite suitable for the country I think.

I suspect that fish skins get used in lots of everyday products we and we are not even aware of it - cosmetics, foods etc.

A fun idea for their stamps though.  I keep reading that stamp production is in decline since the advent of email but issues like these suggest otherwise.

If any collectors of Faroe Island stamps are also vegans, will it mean they will have gaps in their collections?

Now that's a diagram I'd like to see...

100% population; % of population are stamp collectors; % of stamp collectors collect Faroe Island stamps; % of Faroe Island collecting stamp collectors who are vegan; % of completist vegan Faroe Island collecting stamp collectors staring wistfully at their stock book.

Venn you have sorted that out I'd like to see the results.
