Aland Post issued traditional Christmas 2015 stamps on Stamp Day featuring Delightful paper art created by Swedish paper artist Fideli Sundqvist.
The heartwarming motifs were designed by Fideli Sundqvist, the most prominent paper artist in Sweden.
Christmas 2015 – Delightful paper art
Swedish paper artist and illustrator Fideli Sundqvist created the originals for the stamps entirely in paper before photographing them.
Fideli has made a name for herself through her elaborate paper artwork for Louis Vuitton, among others, and she has also released an inspirational book about paper.
Stamps with the no-value indicator “Julpost” may be used for sending Christmas greetings within Åland and to Sweden and Finland at a reduced price for a limited period prior to Christmas.
Any adjustment of the current Christmas postage of €0.70 for the coming season will be determined in late autumn. The no-value indicator “Europa” equals priority postage for mail up to 20 gram (currently €1.20).
