Sending Easter greetings has long traditions, and a postcard with a spring theme is a delight for all recipients. This year, the Easter stamp features a bunch of catkins painted by artist Maarit Ailio. The playfully named Virvon varvon publication was designed by Paula Salviander.
“I especially like painting with watercolors so I chose them as the illustration technique. I also feel that a traditional painting technique suits well a delicate spring stamp”, Ailio says.
The Virvon varvon sheet contains fifteen domestic no-value indicator stamps.
