Stamps from a set of 5 issued by SingPost on July 2016, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the annual Singapore Youth Festival. The festival "celebrates the rich diversity of youth talent in schools in Singapore" and the stamps contain designs "that symbolise the dynamism and energy of youths and their artistic pursuits in the arts, dance, drama and music".  More here.

TAAF stamps 2017

Some of the new TAAF stamps issued by LaPoste on January 1. I don't purchase as many as I used to. I usually pass on the mini sheets and higher value stamps. It's just getting too expensive to buy them all each year.

The mineral stamps this year feature a well applied spot varnish. And the "Foraminifera" shaped stamp is heavily embossed.
