Chinese New Year / 旧正月のお祝い

February 9, 2013


1 December 1965, Taiwan
‘Folklore Stamps’
designer: Wen Hsueh-ju

Today is Chinese New Year – the official beginning of the year of the Snake.  You may witness a traditional style celebration in the China Town near you.

This set of stamps are from Taiwan – and they were printed in Japan.  I enlarge a part of it, as you can see the sparkling collaboration between a Taiwanese designer and Japanese print technician on the pattern of traditional costume.  This Taiwanese Stamp Archive helps me to find out the hidden context of stamps.
