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.
