Postcard 150 years -mint

Through illustrations of 6 different postcards, the stamp booklet describes the development of postcards.

One stamp shows Finland’s first postcard, sent by author Zachris Topelius to his cousin in Vaasa in 1871. Another stamp shows a postcard reflecting strong national feelings, depicting the Finnish flag and a farmer. A field postcard depicting a soldier writing home is the subject of the third stamp.

The fourth stamp depicts a fairy-tale-themed postcard drawn by beloved illustrator Rudolf Koivu, in which an elf hands flowers to a princess. Landscapes and tourist attractions have always been popular themes in postcards. From this genre, the stamp booklet presents a nostalgic card from Porvoo.

The most modern postcard motif depicts a postcard created from the sender's own photograph. It is sent directly from the computer or smartphone of the sender, and the recipient will receive a real postcard in the mailbox.
