La Poste : Animals in colors


On February 12, 2024, La Poste (the French Post Office) will issue a booklet of 12 postage stamps, illustrated with close-up photos of feathers, coats or animal scales.

A little natural history…
From here and elsewhere, animals fascinate us… We love them for their beauty, their unusual character, their extraordinary diversity. This booklet of twelve postage stamps pays them the most beautiful tribute. Birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, offer their feathers, their coat or their scales to the photographer’s lens. The result is both original and artistic: real paintings where bright or dark colors vibrate in harmony with shapes and textures, spotted, striped, speckled, curly… An ode to animal beauty and nature, a true work of art that constantly amazes us.
