Touva Postage Stamps

I came across these unusual postage stamps recently.

 
 
Love all the details in the illustrations.

 
Seemingly, Touva is a place in central Asia, near Mongolia.  I'm ashamed to admit that I'd never heard of it before.

 
Great stamps, though.

 
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.  Its freezing here in Greenock, but perhaps tomorrow will be nicer (I live in hope)!

Love, Liz

We went to a concert by singers from Touva a few years ago, they can sing, hum and whistle all at the same time, amazing sound! Love the fact the stamps are triangular.

How bizarre - especially the triangular ones. Love the fact that when you look closely there is such fine detail x Jane

Wow these are amazing. I've never seen stamps so detailed before or triangular for that matter! Nor have I ever heard of that country either so you're not the only one there.

Aren't they beautiful? No, I hadn't heard of Touva either, but it produces interesting stamps, clearly! xxx
