Mauldin’s stamps are a must-have for me! Husband inherited 1945 edition of Mauldin’s Pulitzer-winning book, Up Front from his WW2-vet grandfather. I consider it a family treasure, though obviously well worn by reading and re-reading, with coffee stains and grandkids who were fascinated with Grampa’s embosser. Hahaha

So cool!
I recently bought the 2 volume collection of his strips and I couldn’t put it down. Beautiful drawings and a little history in each strip. Too bad I use stamps so infrequently, I don’t think the water company cares about my taste in comics.
