another archive! / アーカイブ好き

November 29, 2011

1 September 1971, New Zealand
Mount Cook National Park
design: Mark Cleverley

I found another stamp archive from New Zealand, which tells me the stories of historical stamps.  So, I will start collecting stamps from the new world, as I can find the year of issue and name of the designer who made this rather unusual colour of sky.  I couldn’t find what are the animals in this stamp, though.

The archive tells me that the first New Zealand stamp motif was Queen Victoria.

    maybe thars ? It’s a kind of goat from the Himalaya who was introduced in NZ where it is considered (unfortunately) a pest animal and is hunted recreationally !

    but ok, on the stamp they look more like cows :o)
