Philately Fridays: Cyprus, 1972

Two stamps from the island of Cyprus. I love the combination of the Greek lettering with Otl Aicher's timeless Olympic marks.

Philately Fridays: South Korea, 1974

Beautiful Korean stamp from 1974. I'm gonna ask around for a translation of the text. Until then, just enjoy the Tron geometry happening here.
