1980 Brazil
15 years of Embratel
design: Gian Calvi

Issued in 1980, this stamp shows six different ways of sending messages to a remote place – I am not sure what the left hand side top image indicates, though…  Middle one on the right hand side is a punch card.  My mother (born 1937) was a forefront key puncher from 1955 in the Mazda car factory.  The recording efficiency has been dramatically improved since!

I like this simple composition and modest colours.
