Tarzan is a literary creature of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Do you remember this popular fictional character, usually depicted as wearing a loincloth and jumping from tree to tree in the jungle?


  1. I like those little acorns on the Japan selvedge and always enjoy intricate tree branches.
    It would be nice to swing through the trees like Tarzan although I suspect I would be an accident waiting to happen. Always thought the best bits of the old Johnny Weissmuller films were when he was in the water, such an elegant swimmer.

  2. Branches can get in the way of a beautiful view. But sometimes they frame it so nicely, as in this stamp.
    Love the stylized Japan stamp, too.
    Seeing any forest makes me want to jump in and walk through the view!

  3. We used to try and emulate Tarzan when we were kids. Interesting leaves on the red oak.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
