Philately Fridays: Israel, 1973

Super hot one from Israel, commemorating the 9th Maccabiah Games, a competitive sporting event similar to the Olympics held every four years for Israeli athletes. Excellent illustration work combining the Star of David with a runner and I love the typography in this one, specifically the way the Hebrew and English type flow so well together.

hey Mike,

this stamp is by Dan Reisinger, heavy weight old school Israeli designer who stands behind many top Israeli brands:

He was the first to understnad op art and modernist aesthetics in Israel and I find him fresh even today.

Keep up the good work man,
I'm positive many people r reading your updates.
