The art of Lars Lerin becomes stamps

Five paintings by the artist Lars Lerin will become official Swedish stamps. The date for the release is August 24.

I have always had a dream to create stamps, as I always create painted letters, this is truly amazing, says Lars Lerin.

Some of the painted letters are included in his most recent book, And the bird flew boldly in search of its cage, comparing his own travel memorabilia with artist icon Carl Larsson. Just the combination picture and stamps has always fascinated Lars Lerin. In addition, he likes the idea that the memory of a voyage makes its own journey.
