The Function and the Form of a Stamp
The Function and the Form of a Stamp.
Connections between the tradition and the production of stamps in Finland

Stamp is not only a means of paying for postal services. The small and often unnoticed everyday product is closely linked with the society. The history of stamps and the history of the issuing country together with the functions formed by this development have a strong impact on the ways how stamps are today produced and looked at. My work studies these relationships. The basis of the research consists of three stamps that I have designed for the Finnish Post.
