Philately Fridays: Cuba 1983


This stamp was issued to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Cuba's Rebel Radio, a station started by Che Guevara (obviously pictured on the stamp) to provide music and news during the Cuban Revolution. Beautiful, simple, and brightly-colored design, very characteristic of many designs coming out of Cuba during this era.

Hey,
I LOVE this blog. I have always had a secret penchant for this stuff, and it blows my mind that the 60s-80s style of advertisement and overall product appearance has given way to Comic Sans-happy shittiness.

I was at a tag sale earlier this week and found something you might like. If you want to post it, I'll be happy to scan it for you!

Also: Perhaps you'd dig the logo of the radio station I DJ for, we have not changed it since 1978.
