The good old '90s 3.9.2012
Ella sent me this wonderful FDC. The series of stamps depicting Finnish music has entered the 1990s. Klaus Welp has designed a six-stamp Stars of the '90s booklet with designated stamps for the following popular artists: Kaija Koo, Jari Sillanpää, Laura Voutilainen, Anna Eriksson and two bands: Agents and Yölintu.
The artists and bands in the stamps have been selected by the Finnish jack-of-all-trades in music Esa Nieminen and Itella. An essential criterion for choosing these artists was popularity that has continued from the 90s to the present day.
The stamp themes are based on album covers that the artists and bands released in the '90s.
