Gorgeous Vintage Swiss Stamps from the 1940s-1970s

As if you needed another reason to love mid-century Swiss design, here are some gorgeous stamps from the collection of obsessive digital philatelist Karen Horton.

More of the Swiss postage design tradition can be found in Swiss Stamps, La Collection Suisse.

Thanks, Sarah + Alexis
