Before photography was invented, pictures were illustrated by artworks hence, many of the early postcards were printed from artwork - Many of the natural created Maximum cards of the early 19th centuries depicting the pyramids and sphinx too were artwork cards. In reality, there are artwork cards produced everywhere and these cards are perfect material for the creation of maximum cards. Don't be surprised by someone commenting on the invalidity of an artwork card by quoting the FIP rules. FIP rules do NOT say so ,But the someone still insists to believe so ! Perhaps, I shall request "Octopus Paolo" to make a selection on "Yes" or "No" to the use of artwork card for a maximum card, "Octopus Paolo"'s decision may be more convincing than the FIP rules.
