Storm Surge Map
design by Irene Klinkenberg and Nicole van Schouwenburg

Celebrating their works on delta protection completed, it shows how the storm tamed within controlled bay – so their birds are secured, too.  Again, a lot of information in small stamp – but nicely designed.  I like the little ‘c’ is located between 6 and 5, otherwise easy to be missed out.  75 cent stamp has illustration of people hand in hand, creating levee… a bit over-descriptive, isn’t it?

防水事業の完成を祝っている1986年のオランダの切手。高ぶる波も堤防を越えず、野鳥も保護されているようです。小さな面積にたくさんの情報が詰め込まれていますが、色合いのおかげかすっきりしています。一枚目、数字6と5の間にこっそりあるセントの「c」がかわいい。2枚目の75セントは人々が手に手をとって堤防を築き、、、というのがちょっと説明過多な気がするのはわたしだけでしょうか?
