tools for everyday

日常の道具たち





19 October 1982, Canada
design: Jean Morin

I like this idea of Definitive stamps depicting the everyday objects.  Stable Lantern for example, hand made with tin.  Fishing spear reminds 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取り上げられると、その国で毎日の生活が大事にされている印象を受けます。このカナダのシリーズには厩のランタン、木製バケツ、風見鶏、魚を穫るヤリ、狩猟のためのデコイ、スケートなどが描かれ、北国のかつての生活を想像させてくれます。
