The stamps will also feature various sought-after Finnish forest mushrooms: the chanterelle, russula paludosa, craterellus cornucopioides, lactarius deterrimus and tricholoma matsutake i.e. matsutake. Posti has designed a booklet of five 1st class stamps in close collaboration with Sieni-ihmiset ry (the association of mushroom enthusiasts). 
The designers of the stamps are the legendary graphic designer Erik Bruun, graphic designer Minni Havas, who has a photorealistic style, Sakke Yrjölä, who is known for his fish illustrations, designer Teemu Järvi, who specializes in nature themes, and painter Tiina Suikkanen. The graphic design for the stamp booklet is by Dog Design. The first day cover and cachet of the publication were designed by Erik Bruun.
Thank you Ella for this lovely FDC.
