Tatu and Patu to go on an adventure on stamps this fall
The fall’s stamp season will begin next week as, on Wednesday, September 2, Posti will release four new stamp publications with a total of 13 different stamps. The stamps feature Tatu and Patu, graphic art that has won Posti’s art award and a painting of a little dreamer. In addition, September’s stamps celebrate the UN’s International Literacy Day.
A Little Dreamer is reaching up
A Little Dreamer, designed by visual artist Netta Tiitinen, is based on a commissioned painting that depicts a girl who loves glitter and sparkles and who is reaching up. According to Tiitinen, the stamp and the painting reflect the courage, enthusiasm, curiosity and spontaneity of children.
“The painting chosen for the stamp belongs to the series of true-story paintings. Commissioned paintings are important for me because it is always great to paint real people and their life stories. It might even be the most valuable thing that an artist gets to do,” says Tiitinen.
The domestic no-value indicator stamp A Little Dreamer will be issued as a 10-stamp sheet.
