A to Z of New Zealand Stamps.

I really love stamps, both old and new. These lovelies are no exception. An A to Z look at New Zealand's culture, history, and heritage, in 26 super great looking stamps.

"Of course there are 26 stamps, one for each letter of the alphabet, and each showing something uniquely New Zealand. Where else would an ‘L’ stand for ‘log o wood’ – referring of course to the hotly contested provincial rugby Ranfurly Shield; or ‘G’ for ‘goodnight kiwi’ the lovable little chap who’s bedtime ritual used to signal the night’s end to TV viewing."

Here are my favs from the set:

Hey guys, love this collection. There is even an A1 poster of this collection for only $5NZD that's like 25c US (not really but still).

I gotta say I love the A. It says so much about the New Zealand Maori culture. Cheers for this, off to find a Post Shop and get a copy of the poster.
