Rijksmuseum stamps presentation on the eve of Royal opening

On the eve of the opening of the Rijksmuseum, business director Erik van Ginkel, received the first Rijksmuseum stamps from Director of Consumer & Small Business PostNL, Annerie Lekkerkerker. The stamp sheet issued in the context of the reopening of the Rijksmuseum shows the details of 24 works of art, providing a picture of the vast collection of the Rijksmuseum, in time as well as in subject and technique.

The design is based on the swipe technology of smartphones and tablets, which is also used on the new website of the Rijksmuseum. "I hope that the stamps encourage people to discover the Rijksmuseum collection in the museum itself or on the website. There are so many special and beautiful works of art," designer Irma Boom says. The stamps are available at Bruna outlets, the Collect Club in Groningen, online via www.postnl.nl/collectclub, and at the Rijksmuseum. The stamps have an indefinite term of validity.
