13 Oct 2017  Fri

Indonesia released a souvenir sheet on 14th July featuring famous landmarks of the world to honour an international project called Postcrossing in which people from different countries send each other postcards.

A single 10,000-rupiah stamp on the souvenir sheet features a cartoonish design with a man holding a giant postcard and parts of famous attractions like the tip of one of the pyramids of Egypt, the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the arm of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The selvage features other landmarks like Eiffel Tower, the Sydney Opera House, Singapore’s merlion sculpture, the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China and Rome’s Colosseum.

A se-tenant strip of three 3,000rp stamps is also available. The design of the stamp at the center of this strip is same as that of the 10,000rp souvenir sheet. The stamp on the left features Indonesian landmarks while the stamp on the right depicts a girl sitting at a window in the foreground and a volcanic landscape in the background.
