Fashions and Style 13.9.2010
The autumn stamps kick off with pop antiques from the 1960s. Many homes in those days had the Cobra phone, go-go boots, ball chair and floral mirror shown on Pekka Piippo’s stamp. The Antiques stamp series thus makes a leap in time from the previous Gustavian and Art Nouveau stamps. About POP stamp. The golden time of plastic! 60's and early 70's was the period when in the Nordic countries the main material for the innovative design products was plastic. Furnitures and even clothes were made of different kind of plastic. Graphic designer Pekka Piippo has fitted this all in one stamp - a chair, a telephone, wall paper, Hifi Stereo by Salora, Go-go boots and the Palaset -shelf unit by Ristomatti Ratia. This is the fourth stamp in the series Antiques. Thank you Ella for this nice FDC.
