Blanka has posted detailed photos of the Wim Crouwel Vormgevers poster being printed.

I’m dying to buy one but with the dollar being so low, the poster would cost me $200. Might be worth it though.

An excellent collection of well designed stamps, mainly Dutch. Here’s also a great set done by Wim Crouwel. It’s amazing how these designers were able to cramp such wonderful designs and compositions in such a small canvas.

I don’t know about the rest of the world but here in the US are stamps are ugly and cheesy. Would love to hear from people outside the US, especially in Europe, about the design quality of their current stamps.
