These festive stamps celebrate the holiday season, creating a story on each stamp using different animals, plants and flowers. Studio Tord Bootje uses contrasting reds and blues, as well as a different assortment of animals to create beautiful holiday stories. A phoenix, swan and fox grace the stamps, creating unique scenes and evoking the idea of togetherness at the holidays.
“I wanted to show how important it is to be together in December or to think of one another during this time”, Boontje says. “That’s why I featured stories of people and animals on every stamp and ensured that there is interaction between the figures.”
The collection, which includes ten different scenes, was designed for the Dutch national postal company PostDL.
