Typographic Stamps, from Jung Kim Min.

I’m not a philatelist, but I do buy stamps that feature exquisite design and typography so I’ll probably try to get a set of these if and when they come out.

This project from designer Jung Min Kim, features 18 stamps that showcase some of the most important typefaces in the history of typography. Each stamp highlights the most important feature of the face, and when the stamp is peeled off the backing sheet, it reveals additional information about the type designer, and the significance of the typeface itself. (release date, where it was designed, designers name, foundry, etc.) To promote the stamp line Jung Min Kim took two of the stamps and created promotional posters.
