Slideshow: Jenn Pascoe’s Paper Bag Stamp Documentation

September 6, 2012


I’ve been fascinated by my friend Jenn Pascoe’s quietly growing collection of name stamps from the bottoms of paper bags. She keeps a Flickr set of these images, right now still a self-defined work in progress. I like these small gestures at some sort of individual humanity inside the industrial manufacturing machine. Anyone out there know more about the story behind these stamps?
