Abstract

How might I highlight cultural diversity around the world via postage stamps? Postage stamps are an optimal choice to showcase stories that are passed down in multiple cultures. I will be focusing on the creation of six stamps inspired by the folktales surrounding natural wonders from six countries: Dragons of the Aurora Borealis in northern China, the grieving mother of the Tunupa and Salar de Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia, the whimsical Fairy Chimneys in Turkey, the curious rock troll of the Reynisdrangar Cliffs in Iceland, the black stingray of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and finally the seven sisters of the Pleiades according to Kiowa Legend in the US. Each will be designed and illustrated by me and printed using the Risograph (Riso) printer to maintain stylistic harmony.
