Fungi on Stamps: Guinea to the Isle of Man

Notable items in this section include some of the most extreme examples of ‘milking the market’ by producing repetitive issues just for sale to stamp collectors. Many of these are excellent examples of graphics design and high quality colour printing in miniature and are worth having for these features.

The issue I like most is the Guinea 2009 series called ‘Mushrooms on stamps’! The collective sheet in this set has six stamps showing previous issues from Australia, Afghanistan, Andorra and France [VIEW]; and the set is completed with a souvenir sheet with a single stamp showing a previous issue from the Faroe Islands [VIEW].
Of biological note is the series from Guinea-Bissau in 1988 which combines anatomical and microscopic details with the mushroom images [VIEW], which can be compared with the Micronesia 2000 series entitled ‘Mushrooms Spectacular’ showing magnified details [VIEW] but also has explanations of folk tales.
