About A Joint Issue with the Czech Republic- The 30th Ann of the Establishment of the Czech Post and the Slovak Post

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic in 1993, the Ministry of Transport of the Slovak Republic, in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic, has prepared a philatelic exhibition to present Czech and Slovak stamp designs since the dissolution of the common state. The stamp design of both countries builds upon a common tradition of more than 70 years of the issuance of postage stamps. This has been demonstrated by various series dedicated to similar topics, such as nature protection, cultural monuments and historical anniversaries along with the works of important artists in graphic art and the steel engraving of postage stamps, which is part of the common Czechoslovak cultural heritage, that has earned both countries many significant international awards. The series ART, that dates back to 1965, is a particularly good example. The stamps from this series were printed using multicolour recess printing, a feature that is unique to Czech and Slovak stamp design.
