StampNews.com is glad to inform that Netherlands Post introduced a special set of stamps dedicated to Miffy ‒ a small female rabbit in a series of picture books drawn and written by Dutch artist Dick Bruna. The issue was released on the 28th of January and is now available for purchasing.
After Miffy and her friend Nina sang a song from the new musical ‘Miffy Celebrates', PostNL Director Ludo Voorn presented Miffy and Nina with the first stamps. Voorn explained why Miffy deserves her own stamp, now that she has turned sixty. "We are proud to highlight this important event with the issue of twelve series of stamps throughout the year. I'm convinced that these unique stamps will bring back very fond memories of the Miffy books for many".
As part of the programme, artist Richard Hutten revealed the first ever Miffy-related art project. "What makes the sculpture so unique is that Miffy is always looking you straight in the eye. Miffy has no front or back because she has six eyes and six mouths", explains Hutten.
