40 Part 6 – Tintimbres

tintimbres03_resize.jpg

In the late 1970’s, the French department store La Samaritaine held a competition in which contestants could buy sealed envelopes containing one of four sheets of specially designed Tintin stamps. They could also win bikes and stuff, but the stamps themselves proved to be a big enough incentive to have people storm the stores…

Later, the same art was used on a single stamp sheet issued by the chocolate maker Côte d’Or to celebrate Tintin’s 50th anniversary.
