Mooi Nederland 2009
Every year for the past 5 years, TNT Post has published a series of stamps to commemorate various Dutch cities called Mooi Nederland. In 2009, SILO designed stamps for the cities of Assen, Tilburg, Roosendaal, Oosterhout and Delfzijl. These less famous cities are hard to visualize with the help of only their buildings or unremarkable skylines. The concept focuses on old sayings, noteworthy objects and historical observations. These stories behind the surroundings are what brings a city to life. According to the client, this series holds the record for the greatest density of information ever printed on a stamp sheet.
