Graphic Design: Here's one for your stamp collection from the Dutch Postal Service

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

In an enormous new digital catalogue by the Memory of the Netherlands, 150 years worth of graphic design for the Dutch Post Office Board is now on display. Designs for stamps, the stamps themselves and posters created by a huge number of designers to suit the high-profile design policy of the postal service are all included, and they make for a fascinating timeline of graphic design. From the commonplace to the obscure, you’ll find some stunning typography and illustration at your very fingertips. Design geeks, go wild!
