On February 3, 2023 the Ministry of Communications and Informatization of the Republic of Belarus will issue 3 stamps on the theme “Constellations” of the series “Astronomy”.
I love the constellation motif!
And the postmark is really perfect.
In Japan, a special stamp will be issued on March 15th.
The focus is on the beauty and artistry of stamps, and this time the subject is French architecture.
The stamp was designed by French illustrator Florence Gendre.
Using multiple types of special printing, it has a gorgeous finish such as gold leaf processing and embossing, but the face value is 500 yen!
It costs 70 yen to send a postcard overseas from Japan, and 110 yen to send an envelope.
When should I use this expensive stamps?
And why didn’t you use Japanese architecture as a motif?
It’s a mystery to me… (Chambord and Chenonceau castles are amazing, of course!)
Maybe use it for packages? Small packets?
As to why he chose the castles, my guess is because they’re French, so they picked a familiar subject?
Ahh, the Summer Triangle constellations from Belarus, how beatiful
again very lovely constellation stamps
Always lovely German stamps.
