New Czech stamp - January 2009 - II.
Issued today, a new stamp in the ongoing stamp-on-stamp series called Traditions of the Czech Stamp Design, dedicated to rediscovering past masters of stamp design and engraving. The current stamp reproduces a stamp from 1960 made by Anna Podzemná (artist) and Jiří Švengsbír (engraver). It is issued in 840,000 copies, a part of which can also be found in booklets where 4 out of 8 stamps are accompanied by a coupon with a floral motif.
