Kick off fall in Finland with pop stars, pets and dreamscapes
Itella kicks off the fall season for Finnish stamps on Monday, 3 September, with the introduction of three new first-class stamp series that contain a total of 17 stamps. The themes include famous Finnish pop stars from the 1990s, cute little animals, and fall dreamscapes.
Klaus Welp has designed a six-stamp Stars of the ’90s booklet with designated stamps for the following popular artists: Kaija Koo, Jari Sillanpaa, Laura Voutilainen, Anna Eriksson and two bands: Agents and Yolintu.
The artists and bands in the stamps have been selected by the Finnish jack-of-all-trades in music Esa Nieminen and Itella. An essential criterion for choosing these artists was popularity that has continued from the 90s to the present day.
The stamp themes are based on album covers that the artists and bands released in the ’90s. The ’90s stars sticker stamp booklet will have an issue of 500,000 copies.
Cute little animals to warm the heart!
Pets is a stamp booklet by Satu Lusa whose six stamps feature small, lovable animals. The animals include a European cat, a large eared rabbit, a small rabbit, a dachshund, a Jack Russel terrier, and a British short haired cat.
Alluring and surreal fall dreamscapes
Miika Saksi’s Fall Dream stamp booklet takes the viewer to surreal dreamscapes. The five stamps in the booklet include fall colors and several fall-related themes such as migratory birds, a scarecrow and a hot air balloon. Harvest is illustrated in a stamp where a girl is feeding carrots to a horse. The lanterns on the fifth stamp light up the darkening fall evenings. The Fall Dream sticker stamp booklet will have an issue of 400,000 copies.
