Czech Republic – Maxi Cards

Stan sent me these three maxi cards issued between the 26th and 30th June 2010. The first maxi card is about the Prague Postal Museum. In a small house in a busy neighborhood street hiding one of the most interesting museums in Prague, is the Postal Museum, which celebrates 90 years since its inception. The collection features millions of objects.including the Penny Black. The visitor can admire not only the first adhesive postage stamps in the world - Penny Black, but also a unique blue Mercury - the first newspaper stamps of the world in 1851 by the then Austria served to deliver newspapers and plastered directly on the prints. Stan met Mr Adalf Born (while in Prague), the famous Czech stamp designer, who has been involved in stamp designing for over 50 years. On the 26th he opened the exhibition of his stamp designs in the Postal Museum. Here is a card with a special “Cat” postmark.

Next is the Baroque Style Pharmacy at the White Unicorn. This Royal Town of Klatovy in South Bohemia celebrated its 750th Anniversary on the 28th. And the third maxi card is about new series of self adhesive stamps. The card has a pretty postmark too.
