Germany 2021 July to Dec stamps

Germany 2021 July to Dec stamps picks up with a great weather set and ends with Christmas. Lots of thematics to collect with the usual outstanding cancels – ships, architecture, anniversaries and angels. So much to collect and so little time.  When I started this page, I didn’t envision posting so much detail. Imagine my delight when I keep finding cool info to share you with. Breaking it down Germany into two parts makes the pages a little less cumbersome. If you haven’t checked out Germany 2021 Jan to June, here it is German stamps 2021 – cancel cornucopia. If you would like to support projects like this page, skip down to the bottom of the page and hit the donation or Patreon links.

Stamp Day - Mauritius Letter cancel Stamp Day - Mauritius Letter cancel Mauritius cancel special

Stamp Day - Mauritius Letter

 Maritius stamp block

Stamp Day 2021 FDC

1 stamp, sheet, 2 cancels, special cancel, FDC

The so-called Bordeaux letter was abandoned on 4 October 1847 by the wine merchant Edward Francis in Port Louis, who

Capital of the then British colony Mauritius, and was addressed to the trading partner Ducan & Lurguie in Bordeaux, France. Because the red 1-penny stamp was intended for domestic mail and the blue 2-pence stamp for foreign mail, it would not have been necessary to use both on the same envelope. The error may have stemmed from the fact that the island’s first stamps had not been issued until September 22. With stops in England, Boulogne and Paris, the letter reached its destination after 85 days on 28 December 1847 and diligently collected stamps on the way that bear witness to the various stations of its long journey.

For 55 years, the Bordeaux letter lay unnoticed in the archive of the wine merchant – until a schoolboy made the discovery of his life in 1902 while rummaging through the dusty correspondence. The following year he sold it for 40,000 francs. Since then, the letter has changed hands several times – especially later during spectacular auctions – and in 1993 finally brought in the record sum of over 6 million Swiss francs, which corresponds to a current value of around 5.5 million euros. Even today, the Bordeaux letter is one of the most valuable philatelic objects in the world because of its legendary stamps, the diverse stamping and the good preservation. From the Stempel und Information Newsletter #17

1010 is one of the best-known and internationally sought-after artists on the street art scene. In his works, he has been addressing visual perceptions and optical illusions for several years. Born in Poland in 1979, he came to the Hanseatic city with his parents as a child. In 1994 he sprayed the first graffiti and developed a characteristic style. His stage name emerged about ten years later: On early works made of newsprint, he showed stylized figures labeled with the numbers 1 and 0, a hidden indication of how extremely binary much of the information conveyed is presented in our media landscape and how much we are influenced by this black-and-white thinking.

Die Heinzelmännchen translates roughly to house brownies or house gnomes depending on the translation you are using. 

The tailor’s wife disturbs the Heinzelmännchen in their work. …

Die Nibelungen is an epic poem written around 1200 AD. If you’d like to read a bit more about the tale try Nibelungenlied | German epic poem | Britannica

Siegfried fights against the dragon

The Nibelungen saga is one of the best-known German heroic legends. To this day, their material is widely used in Germanic and Scandinavian countries. Over many centuries, it has been handed down in numerous different versions, first in oral form and later in written form. An outstanding example of European heroic epic is the Nibelungenlied (around 1200, author unknown), whose three most important and complete manuscripts were included in the list of UNESCO Memory of the World in 2009.

 Blum is known as one of Germany’s prominent pro-democracy politicians. Yet, he has largely been left out of collective memory. As Steinmeier put it: “Robert Blum is a particularly tragic example of the shortcomings of our culture of remembrance. He died for freedom, but hardly anyone in his country remembers him.” Steinmeier then quoted the revolutionary’s supposed final words: “I die for the freedom, may my country remember me.”

Blum was executed in Vienna on November 9, 1848 — he was shot by imperial troops the day before his 41st birthday. Robert Blum: Remembering a forgotten revolutionary icon | Culture | Arts, music and lifestyle reporting from Germany | DW | 10.11.2020

Christopher Plummer honoured

Christopher Plummer honoured

Canada Post unveiled their new Christopher Plummer (1929 – 2021) stamp today. Designer Steven Slipp was faced with the monumental job of distilling a 7 decade career into a single stamp. Using the skills of illustrator Spooky Pooka, they managed to create an image that incorporated some of Plummer’s most notable roles.

Australian Antarctica or AAT stamps for 2021 are short and sweet. Two sets this year, and both are typical of the stamps that come via Australia Post Design Studio – clean, bright and incredibly sharp. This year’s Lichen echoes the 2016 Ice Flowers , which was an amazing bit of photographic artistry.

Since 1984, the Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship program has enabled artists and writers
to travel to Antarctica and create work inspired by their experiences and insights. The program
seeks to increase awareness and appreciation of Antarctica and the subantarctic, including its
unique environment and rich history. Through their Antarctic-inspired creations, fellows have done
much to promote the icy continent and the work of the Australian Antarctic Program to Australians
and the world.

Lichens are some of the oldest living organisms on Earth and one of only four main types of plants that grow in harsh Antarctic conditions. They have very slow growth rates (in Antarctica, from around one centimetre or more per 100 years to as little as one centimetre per 1,000 years)… In Antarctica, three main types of lichens exist: crustose lichens, which form a thin crust on the surface of the substrate on which they grow (such as rocks or even moss); foliose lichens, which form leaf-like lobes; and fruticose lichens, which have a shrubby, coral-like appearance.
