Christmas with Åland Post 10.10.2016

Designed by Swedish illustrator Maja Lindberg, the stamps show charming Christmas elves preparing for the season.
This year, Swedish artist Maja Lindberg makes her debut as stamp artist for Åland Post. She has also illustrated this year’s Christmas seals that complement the two Christmas stamps. Maja pondered for some time before she thought of a suitable theme but, having decided on the Christmas elves, it didn’t take her long to create the motifs.
“I wanted to create a sense of Christmas in my illustrations; a wintry scenery under a starry bright sky and tiny Christmas elves preparing for Christmas”.
Thank you Ella.
