Our Spaceship Earth / 宇宙船地球号

March 21, 2020

29 December 1956, Italy
First Anniversary of Italy to United Nations
design: C. Donati

We are facing a global pandemic – all commercial and cultural gatherings are restricted here in the UK, too.  It is heavy and sad to see and hear news from Italy, where a lot of friends of mine and their families live.  People from Italy are telling us what to prepare, what to expect, and how people are supporting each other – this reminds me that we are living on one and only Spaceship Earth

This is one of the early examples of the globe on a stamp design – and if you compare this to other stamps from a similar era, you would notice how modern and avant-garde this design was.  If you have 3D glasses with red and cyan color filters – please try.
