Letter sent to the Galician writer Séchu Sende (Spain), author of Made in Galiza. I enjoyed so much the short stories of this book, that I tried to draw on the envelope one of them: Madrith. I would like to know if the letter reached its destination and if the recipient enjoyed the drawing. But I have not got any reply (so far?).
The theme for today Sunday Stamps- II is The colour green, so I thought I could add this stamp as well. It was issued by Correos two years ago, on 14 March, 2014, dedicated to Information and Communication Technologies (TIC, in Spanish) . See also the FDC.
It combines three ICT elements: the emoticon, the QR code and the Augmented reality. If we capture the QR code, we can see a video about AR and its applications. So this stamp offers the possibility of access information beyond the stamp itself. For that reason it asks ¡Mírame bien! (='Look carefully at me').
Correos has issued some AR stamps. From now on, you can also make your own official stamp with a QR code that allows the recipient to see a video. I am not sure that this is really interesting, but I found it curious anyway. It sounds like the mail in the books of Harry Potter, where the letters from your Mom can shout at you...
