Summer Landscapes 5.5.2014
Another new stamp designer for the spring is Janne Gröning, who has photographed traditional Finnish summer landscapes for six stamps. The 1st class Sweet Summer stamp was released in a handy foldable self-adhesive booklet in credit card size. The booklet issued on 5th May 2014 also contains Priority stickers. The graphic design of the Sweet Summer stamps comes from Tero Jämsä.
The themes include sunsets, lakes and the sea, fields, and forests. With his photographs, Janne Gröning wants to relay relaxing and therapeutic nature experiences to all who cannot or do not have the time to visit nature themselves. The views featured on the stamps were photographed in Iniö, the lsland of Keistiö, the shore of Lake Näsijärvi, Nauvo, and the Salo region.
Thank you Ella.
