Within the Christmas stamp series, POST Philately wished to confirm for 2015 its desire for innovation. Following the scented and velvet effect stamps, the 2015 Christmas stamps have been designed by the photographer Jacques Schneider with an artistic effect that is both graphic and photographic. The stamps are based on photos of the City of Luxembourg in winter taken by the artist from unique angles in black and white and reworked with blue and orange tones.
Jacques Schneider succeeds at rendering in light and colour the subjects that impress him beyond measure. He acknowledges a great admiration for beautiful things, the unusual, and particularly for his adopted country, Luxembourg. He is lovingly fond of its villages and landscapes and professes a great love for the grand ducal family.
