Postage stamp design B&H Nobel Laureates

Category: Print

Our Art Director Marin Musa has designed a new postage stamp honoring the achievements of the Bosnia and Herzegowinas Nobel Laureates - Ivo Andric and Vladimir Prelog. In working up the design, besides the portraits of the famous scientists and Nobel Laureates, the design takes into account their accomplishments in the fields of chemistry and literature. The design also includes visual elements of the identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina as their homecountry. By closer examination philathelists will reveal specific details in the design. For example, to the right they will notice the Bridge of Višegrad across the Drina river, and on the left there are chemical and molecular structures to represent the most important accomplishments of Ivo Andrić and Vladimir Prelog. As this stamp goes around the world, we hope that it will generate lots of publicity and consciousness about Bosnia and Herzegovina and its scientific history.
