Postcard from Åland no. 2

Post no. 200. A postcard showing a map of Finland and a few views of this interesting country, sent on 7 May 2009 from Mariehamn, Åland, and received 4 days later. The stamp with the Europa tariff (0.80 euro) shows a portrait of Ulla-Lena Lundberg, Åland-born writer, next to a depiction of the ship Leo, from the first eponymous book of her trilogy about Åland shipping. The series, issued on 24 March 2009, also includes a stamp featuring Anni Blomqvist and a stamp featuring Valdemar Nyman
