EVERYMAN’S RIGHTS IN 100-YEAR-OLD FINLAND
EVERYMAN’S RIGHTS IN 100-YEAR-OLD FINLAND. Everyone in Finland can enjoy nature regardless of who owns it. The Everyman’s rights stamps in the Finland 100 years series pay tribute to this right. The booklet, containing six 1st class stamps, was designed by Jussi Kaakinen. ”The photographs represent different seasons, the most common natural environments and people from children to the elderly. They enjoy being in nature and know how to behave there. As a first-time stamp designer, I was fascinated by the simplification required by the small image size, but also by the fact that even such a small space is enough to depict vast landscapes. The landscapes on the Everyman’s rights stamps continue outside the actual stamp area, and when separated from the sheet, the stamp may look surprisingly different”, says Kaakinen.
Thank you Ella for a lovely FDC.
