My best favorite British stamps of this year, 2009 – Design Classics.  Simple and straight forward – with White background and often a face view.  Nostallgic – as Creative Review blog describes, and still are familiar landscape of London. Minis are everywhere, each school has 100 Polypropylene chairs and no. 9 Routemaster is still taking us to Royal Albert Hall.

2009年も終わりに近づいていますが、今年一番のお気に入りをまだ紹介していないことに気づきました。10枚一度に発行されメディアでも話題になった英国デザイン・クラシック。「ノスタルジック」とも言われていますが、これらは今でもロンドンの日常に存在するデザインです。ミニはまだ走っているし、ロビン・ディの椅子はどの学校でも使われ、地下鉄地図もこのまま、少しずつ更新されて使われています。2階建てバスさえ健在。切手は白を背景にしたシンプルな構成で、これ以外に、各デザインを賛美する方法はない、と思わせるデザインです。
