19 October 1982, Canada
design: Jean Morin

I like this idea of Definitive stamps are giving spotlight on everyday objects.  Stable Lantern for example, hand made with tin.  Fishins spear remainds me native Canadian’s history, which had been heavily relying upon fish.  Skate blades makes me imagine how North the country is.

普通切手に生活の雑器が描かれていると、その国で毎日の生活が大事にされている印象を受け、嬉しくなります。このカナダの80年代のシリーズには厩のランタン、木製のバケツ、風見鶏、魚を穫っていたヤリ、狩猟のためのデコイ、冬の寒さを想像させるスケートなどが描かれ、かつての生活を想像させてくれます。
