Where Does a Stamp Take You?

Don't you love this slogan? Doesn't it suggest a lot of mail adventures?

This Portuguese stamp belongs to a campaign of Ministry of Education in order to raise the literacy levels of population.

Among other prizes, three participants will thus have the opportunity to see their works printed in a stamp. This one was designed by Francisco Maria Rasquilla, and it is for international letters (20g or less). There are other two stamps, for national and European letters:

  1. I totally agree with you, I love that slogan! So mysterious, adventurous! And so postal :-)

Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
