About Year Book 2017 - (Mint)

Switzerland in all its variety This year too, the collection in the year book of Swiss stamps takes us on a wonderful journey through our richly diverse country, its stories, institutions and attractions. The 2017 year book presents 50 original “facets of Switzerland”, for example the miniature sheet featuring the Creux du Van, the impressive rock formation on the border between the cantons of Neuchâtel and Vaud. Superb photography really makes this miniature work of art stand out. In contrast, the illustration of the Chur rsten mountain range above Walen- see is rather different. In this case, the three-dimensional impression is achieved by meticulously hand-crafting with coloured pencils. The history of Switzerland is highlighted in the form of the great peace-broker Niklaus von Flüe (1417–1487). Of equal historical importance are the ve new motifs continuing the de nitive stamp series “Swiss railway stations”. A very special miniature sheet is dedicated to the quince, fruit of the year in 2017. When touched, the stamp gives off the seduc- tive fragrance of this fascinating culi- nary fruit. The “Quince scent” miniature sheet also features as this year’s black print. But this short summary can include just a few of the many highlights of the year book. On over 100 pages, it presents all Swiss stamps issued in 2017 plus all rst day cancellations for the year. As a docu- ment of our times, it is a treat with which you can give yourself and your loved ones much pleasure and a little piece of Switzerland for just CHF 69.00.
