Wertzeichen Europa

The latest edition of the project, entitled “European Stamps” once again featured a select 
group of Austrian-born or Austria-based designers who have been invited to express concrete reasons why, precisely at such a time of crisis and criticism, Europe can be prized, praised and even loved. The answers to this question are were once again being expressed in the form of designs for stamps which were presented as “advertisements” in the “Presse am Sonntag” across the course of around five months at the end of which they were assessed by a jury, with the winner being reproduced in the form of a special stamp by the Österreichischen Post AG.
