Postcard from Finland

Suomen Joutsen (Swan of Finland) museum ship in Turku in Finland.
Suomen Joutsen is a steel-hulled full rigged ship with three square rigged masts. Built in 1902 by Chantiers de Penhoët in St. Nazaire, France, as Laënnec, the ship served two French owners before she was sold to German interest in 1922 and renamed Oldenburg. In 1930, she was acquired by the Government of Finland, refitted to serve as a school ship for the Finnish Navy and given her current name. Suomen Joutsen made eight long international voyages before the Second World War and later served in various support and supply roles during the war. From 1961 on she served as a stationary seamen's school for the Finnish Merchant Navy. In 1991, Suomen Joutsen was donated to the city of Turku and became a museum ship moored next to Forum Marinum.

The Spring of life is a light and delicate stamp booklet, where the little birds trill in the shelter of thick bushes. Big flowers drawn with a light green line make the impression of the Asian art.
The designer Pietari Posti, born in Helsinki, works in Barcelona. His work has been utilized in advertising, merchandise and apparel such as T-shirts, wallets and furniture.

A strip of three different self adhesive stamps gives a coherent picture of rings on water.
