Featured From Red Century
2017 marks 100 years since the Russian Revolution. The New York Times has dubbed these 100 years “The Red Century”, and is publishing a series of articles on the theme of communism. The history of this Red Century is most convincingly illustrated by the images on Soviet stamps, as they were also often issued in connection with anniversaries and to commemorate certain events. Soviet stamps combined two functions, which at first might seem contradictory.
Serge Stamper has gathered together a new collection of stamps from the Soviet period from 1917 – 1991. Both the stamps themselves and what they depict are nothing short of the traces of a disappearing civilization, its imprint on life on our planet.
