From the reference box #61





#61 - 4 British stamps commemorating Racket Sports; Lawn tennis (8 1/2p), Table tennis (10p), Squash (11p), Badminton (13p). Issued on the 12 January 1977, this set was designed by Andrew Restall, but in a totally different, much bolder illustration style to this set he designed in 1983. I personally prefer this more graphic style with the silhouetted figures and bright, blocks of colour, although I'm not sold on the colour combinations.

The best thing about these stamps for me though, is how they show the paths of the balls and the shuttlecock - it's really interesting to track their movements throughout a game and to see which games are faster as their paths are more direct with less curves and more bounces.

I don’t even know how I finished up right here, but I assumed
this put up was good. I do not recognize who you’re but definitely
you are going to a well-known blogger should you aren’t already.
Cheers!

Wonderful blog you have here but I was wondering
if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
I’d really like to be a part of online community where
I can get comments from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Thanks a lot!
