Update: As announced earlier in the week, some of the stamps will be affected by relocation works. Some 400 stamps have moved in to their new home early yesterday, completing the first phase of the project. The remaining stamps will by moved over the weekend.
On 10 January 2009, the Netherlands’ national postal service issued a series of postage stamps featuring typographic abstractions alongside embossed Braille letters to mark the 200th birthday of Louis Braille. This award-winning stamp issue (at the Dutch National Awards) was designed by Rene Put, this set of stamps can be ‘read’ by both the sighted and the blind. The stamp shown, ‘Geluk Wens Bravo’, is one of the twelve available designs.
A stamp which you can see and touch at the same time! A brilliant design, isn’t it?
This is the second part of the series, Three Stamps from the Netherlands.
