Book of stamps – Luxembourg Mushrooms

3 december 2013

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.

Book of stamps – Luxembourg Mushrooms

This book of stamps shows photographs of mushrooms taken in their natural environment. The images are visual poetry showing a diversity of shapes and colours: 

  • Common puffball
  • Orange Peel Fungus
  • Bay bolete
  • Trametes versicolor
  • Fly agaric. 

These self-adhesive stamps are part of a series shots taken by François Besch
