Tom Of Finland Stamps To Be Released In Finland

April 15, 2014 Posted by suefairview

The late graphic artist Tom of Finland, aka Touko Laaksonen, is to be recognized for his achievments as an artist and style icon by Finland, as the Post Office plans to release commemmorative stamps with his designs in September 2014.

Here is a quote from the Finnish postal service:

His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion. In his works, Tom of Finland utilized the self-irony and humor typical of subcultures. During his career, Tom of Finland produced more than 3,500 drawings… The drawings on the stamp sheet represent strong and confident male figures typical of their designer.

Here are the stamps:

I think it is wonderful for the country of Finland to take such pride in Tom of Finland to recognize him is this manner. Also, what a gorgeous stamp! Were I there, I would buy them up both to use and collect!
