4 November 1983, USA
Olympics 84 Airmail stamps

As a big fan of Intaglio print method, there are not many stamps from USA which I am moved – but some rare exceptions make me very happy.  These stamps are beautifully composed, careful balance between illustration and background White, and coloured lines express speed of athletes.

ざっくりした図柄や印刷の多いアメリカの切手ですが、これは素晴らしい!と思ったシリーズです。一枚いちまいの構成に細心の注意が払われ、イラストの面積と背景の白の分量も美しい。オリンピック選手のスピード感が、カラフルな線で表現されています。
