Christmas 2017

The theme “Winter and Christmas” is ideally suited to the light, lovingly detailed style of the Japanese illustrator Kumiyo Maurel, whose drawings transport us to another world. She is particularly fond of telling stories that she not only writes herself, but also  illustrates.  There was a lot for her to discover while designing this year’s special edition of Christmas stamps.

This is because for us, Christmas is traditionally a family celebration, while the Japanese observe “A Celebration of Love” with friends and colleagues, where Japanese singles hope to meet that special person with whom to spend the rest of their lives. For Kumiyo, who values the fact that every new project also provides her with new inspiration, the work on the illustrations was particularly rewarding.
