upward arrows 2 / 上むき矢印 その2

December 12, 2017

14 November 1962, United Kingdom
National Productivity Year / Units of productivity
design: David Gentleman

N (national) and P (productivity) share an arrow and all stacked up units have upward arrows!  The year when The Beatles played their first session in the Abbey Road Studios, also the Rolling Stones made their debut in London.  The futuristic design of Concord was shown, British and French governments agreed to develop it together ( yes, it took off in 1973! ).

This stamp has an atmosphere of Christmas – of course, its colours.

N(national:国の)とP(productivity:生産性)が上むき矢印を一緒にしょっているデザインが、国を挙げた産業の活性化を謳っている、1962年の切手。ビートルズがアビーロードスタジオでレコーディングを始め、ローリングストーンズがロンドンデビューをした年。コンコルドの最初の模型が発表され、イギリスとフランスが共同開発を始めた年でもありました(11年後には営業をはじめたし!)。

この切手がとてもクリスマスな雰囲気なのは、3色の色合いですね。
