The stamps and the booklet were again designed by the Luxembourg illustrator Julie Wagner: “On-site documenting, i.e. visiting the individual museums, is the first important step to help inspire me and to find out what the special features are.” On this basis she then develops the details of the objects for each theme and designs the main motifs.

"bongerten"or fruit gardens are a typical element of our cultural landscape. there is hardly another habitat in which nature conservation and land use are so ideally combined. in addition to many species of animals and plants, they are also home to another cultural treasure: a myriad of different fruit varieties. according to estimates made by the "natur&emwelt" foundation, luxembourg's "bongerten" contain around 600 regional fruit varieties.
post philately has issued a book of self-adhesive stamps showing the diversity of luxembourg's mushrooms.
there are over 2,500 different species of mushroom in the grand duchy of luxembourg. the humid and temperate climate offers the perfect conditions for mushrooms to prosper in the forests.
they are essential to the ecosystem as they recycle organic waste matter in the forests. they also help the plants and trees to absorb the minerals that they require.
