2022 Europa - Stories and Myths - Set for only GBP £3.76
Year’s 2022 theme in the Europa stamp series is legends and myths. In its Europa stamps, Posti presents two goddesses mentioned in Kalevala poems, among other works. On the shape-cut stamps, Päivätär and Kuutar spin gold and silver thread from the rays of the sun and moon, from which gold and silver clothes are woven. Illustrator Emmi-Riikka Vartiainen, who was chosen to design the stamps, is herself interested in mysticism. “This work involves a lot of my own illustration-related dreams, so realizing them felt exciting on a personal level.
