moo moo & oink oink / モーモー、ブーブー

March 20, 2010



20 November 1962, Romania
design: I. Untch

One more 1960’s set of stamps in evocative colours from Romania.  Even printed with four colours on coarse paper and picturing life stocks of farmers, if designer has ability to make nice composition and colours, the stamps look good.  I would smile whole day if I receive a letter with these stamps on.

By the way, it is quite interesting to know sound of animals in different country.  Pigs talk ‘bu-bu-‘ in Japan and ‘oink oink’ sounds very odd for me.  How do bulls and pigs make noise in your language?

懐かしい色合いの1960年代の切手をもう1セット、ルーマニアから。描かれているのがどこにでもいる家畜で、質の良くないザラ紙に4色で印刷されていても、デザイナーの力量によっては美しい切手になるのですね。この切手が貼られた封筒が届いたら、にっこり微笑むと思いませんか?

ところで、動物の鳴き声はそれぞれの言語でかなり違いがあって面白いです。豚は当然「ブーブー」鳴くと思っていたのだけど。オインクぅ?
