Book-shaped stamp (also: stamp-shaped book)


TNT Post has issued an 8-page stamp in honour of the Dutch book week, which runs from March 10-20.

The stamp is valued at 2.20 euro, which according to TNT’s press release should be enough to send somebody a book.

The book on the stamp was written by Joost Zwagerman (photo), and can also be downloaded here. The book stamp was designed by Richard Hutten. It measures 3 × 4 centimetres, and 266,000 copies were made.
