Hello, managed to find time to collect the new Hong Kong issue today. Hope you like the M/S Hongkong Post and La Poste jointly issue a set of four stamps on art to showcase vintage paintings and contemporary sculptures from Hong Kong, China and from France, reflecting their rich heritage of art. The two paintings, both works of the 19th century, employed a similar colour scheme with realistic rendering and drawing materials originating from the West, whereas the two sculptures, created in the 20th century, were both inspired by animals. Hong Post say this joint stamp issue demonstrates the great passion for art that Hong Kong, China and France share, and showcases the cultural treasures of the two places. You can read more about this issue at Joint Issue Enjoy …... Michael
