a boy on a fish / 魚に乗る男の子

December 11, 2012


10 December 1929, Netherlands
designer: H.H. Kamerlingh

After a small boy riding a flying Goose ( well, posted 2 weeks ago ), I am featuring another boy, this time on a fish ( a kind of Goby fish? ) on Dutch stamps.  But in this case, it could be a huge fish carrying a normal sized boy on…

I like these stamps, particularly their complicated perforation pattern.  This framing make a nice contrast to the simple drawing and letters – and makes these stamps elegant.
