100th anniversary of Toivo Kärki 2.3.2015
On 2nd March, stamps commemorate the 100th anniversary of Toivo Kärki, a versatile talent from Finnish music life. The stamps in the stamp booklet designed by Lasse Rantanen depict the three different phases of Toivo Kärki's long career: a performing musician, an active record business player and composer as well as a record company mogul during the last decades of his career. Lasse Rantanen is known for his imposing, personal illustrations in Helsingin Sanomat's monthly supplement and Suomen Kuvalehti, among other magazines. He was awarded the title of Graphic Designer of the Year in 2005.
Thank you Ella.
