Stamp design for hungarian folk tales by Boglárka Nádi
I chose the designing of a stamp line for the topic of my thesis, because I felt I could make use of my knowledge and experience acquired during my studies in a field where I haven’t spread my wings yet. I found it very exciting to delve into the specifics, traditions and the more than one-and-half-century-long-history of this genre. In order to create something original and novel, I had to take into account all the stamps that have been issued throughout the world. The world of the tale sare close to my heart and I noticed that there were some stamps made with this kind of theme, however there was no series made with an emphasis on just the Hungarian folktales. This good news made me quite happy, because I wouldn’t have considered making a self-serving work and I hoped I could pleasure a wide range of audience. I may be an optimist, but I think there are only a few people who are not delighted by these wonderful stories.
