Stamp design is a very rich tradition in Dutch design so much so stamps are seen as miniature works of art. They cover all kinds of subjects and tell all sorts of stories. They capture the world on a tiny piece of paper. In XXS Dutch Design visitors step into this world immersing themselves in a sea of 1,200 larger than life stamps.
The exhibition showed the stamp design process with the work of Dick Bruna, Irma Boom, de Designpolitie, Rineke Dijkstra, Joost Swarte, Anton Corbijn and Studio Job. The latest royal stamp was also presented for the first time with the exhibition being opened by King Willem Alexander himself.
