China: Quasi-Rice-paper stamps

China Post launched its first set of quasi-rice-paper calligraphy stamps.

The six stamp set is also the third series of Chinese calligraphy stamps that China Post has issued so far.

Instead of using commonly-used postage stamp paper, the six stamps are made of imitation rice paper, and printed with relief techniques, giving a strong sense of three-dimensional effect in the ancient Chinese calligraphy works they carry on them.

What makes the stamp set unique is it includes one of the best calligraphy works of Zhong Yao.
