typography and Marianne


3 March 1986, France
design: Raymond Gid / engrave: Claude Andréotto

This is a stamp on typography, and depicting “Marianne,” the national personification of the French Republic.  I wonder how many countries have a woman as an icon?

Today is the International Women’s Day – so, I decided to feature this stamp although in the context of typography – the design focus is “a”.
