2021 stamps for Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH Pošta)

Written by catpaw

September 29, 2021

2021 stamps for Bosnia and Herzegovina offer up a bit of history, crafts and a kickass snail. No really, the snail borders on beautiful. It’s hard to think of a gastropod that way, but to each their own quirk. 

I was able to dig up a couple of interesting links for some of the issues. The best is the video attached to the Art of Bosnian Carpets. It’s a lovely short film, with no narration, showing women making carpets. I found it quite enjoyable.  If you have any relevant links, especially about the designers, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll take a look at it. 

Enjoy this small but interesting selection of stamps  from BH Pošta.
