Tintin in Indonesia



The Belgian Post Office has issued two exclusive stamps for the Indonesian embassy, featuring a panel from the Tintin album, Vol 714 Pour Sidney. In good Belgian tradition, they went for one stamp in French and one In Dutch. They’re not the most inspiring panels (the Dutch one seems to have been solely picked for the fact that it mentions Djakarta).

At least they could at least have gotten the title of the book in French right…

Earlier this year, a general use set of ten self-adhesive stamps was issued, featuring the likenesses of the ten most iconic Tintin characters.
