hand and tool 3 / 手と道具 3

March 13, 2017

5 September 2000, United Kingdom
Mind and Matter / Millennium projects
design:  The Post Office

Only 31 years since the last featured stamp “hand and tool 2” – one of many Millennium stamps was showing the latest tool at that time, and an operating hand in X-ray photo.

Well, it is a bit old-fashioned shape of mouse with wire ( ooops, already 17 years ago! ), but it was less than a decade since the mouse became a common tool for many industries.

ひとつ前のポストで紹介した『手と道具 2』から31年経った2000年に、ミレニアム記念としてたくさん発行された切手のひとつがこの手とマウスのレントゲン写真でした。

17年前(え〜、もうそんなに前?)の、すでに古く感じるマウスの形とワイヤー。当時はまだ、いろいろな職業でマウスが使われ始めてから10年ぐらいしか経っていなかった頃です。
