Phoenix and little cloud / 鳳凰と小さな雲

September 25, 2009


12 October 1953, Japan
Prince Akihito returned from abroad
designer:  Ryusaku Nakao
engraver: Yoshiro Kawahara

In contrast to the last stamp issued in the same year, it clearly shows that post office paid effort to make this stamp impressive.  OK, it looks good but was it that important to celebrate the young prince had returend from Oxford University?  Anyway, worth to magnify and enjoy.  My eyes are cought by a little cloud floating near the bottom of the Phoenix.  Yes, it was needed to make graphical balance.
