About Artistic Photography - Ice - Set Mint

Three special stamps with detailed motifs depicting ice scenes are the latest addition to the “Artistic Photography” stamp series. Photographer Sepp Köppel took the macro photos “Ice Flow” (face value: CHF 1.00), “Stone Islands” (face value: CHF 1.10) and “Streamlines” (face value: CHF 1.30) on the River Rhine. The finishing process applied to produce the stamps included high-relief embossing and thermography to depict the stones ground in the river. This process gives the stamps a very special feel due to their rough surface. The history of the Rhine Valley where Liechtenstein is located is closely linked to that of the River Rhine as it forms a natural border with Switzerland.
