This series of stamps must be depicting the history of wind turbine, as traditional windmills must have invented a lot earlier than 1891.  I was impressed by the view of wind turbines built long line in the sea, when airplane approached to Danish coast – as the 4th stamp depicts.  I like this contrast between latest technogoly and traditional Intaglio print.

風力発電の歴史の切手と思われます。風車だったら1891年よりもずっと以前から存在するはずなので。だとすると、1891年にすでに発電を考えていたデンマークは先見の明があったということですね。飛行機でコペンバーゲンに向かうと、到着の直前に海の中にずらっと並ぶ4枚目の切手に描かれている風車に圧倒されます。この最新技術が、伝統の凹版印刷で丁寧に切手にされている、そのコントラストに魅力を感じます。
