Stamps dedicated to 10-10-’10

Oct 10, 2015 | News, Photography

On 10-10-’15 the stamps for which I designed the concept were launched.

This series is to commemorate the first lustrum of the autonomous country Curaçao.

My commission, given to me by C-Post International, was to raise historical awareness with this series.

But… how much can you tell on a small stamp? Well, when you use a QR code; a lot!

In cooperation with the Nationaal Archief we choose the four most important events in the constitutional history of Curaçao. On my request the Nationaal Archief linked a politician to each of those events. Their faces enabled me to make the QR codes look more interesting.

When you scan these QR’s, they will bring you to a page with information about each of these events.
