The stamps released in June will feature six innovations, eight wild flowers and two animals familiar from the yard
On Wednesday, June 3, Posti will release three new stamp publications with 16 different stamps. The stamps will feature Finnish innovations, wild flowers and familiar small mammals you might encounter in your yard.
In our day-to-day lives, we use many Finnish innovations that were born out of the need to make daily life easier. Designed by Susanna Rumpu and Ari Lakaniemi, the stamps showcase six Finnish innovations that are also internationally famous: the heart rate monitor, xylitol, the Rapala wobbler lure, the Abloy lock, the pedestrian safety reflector and the winter tire.
The cover of the book of stamps shows the product pictures of the innovations in their early stages in chronological order. According to the designer pair, the stamps themselves portray the modern versions of the products in different seasons, from early spring to winter. In this fashion, the booklet and stamps depict the picture of the times and changes in design, in addition to the development of the products.
The Made in Finland stamp booklet contains six domestic no-value indicator stamps.
