Imagine looking at our country for the first time. What would we see? What defines New Zealand? What sets us apart as we meet the challenges and promises for the new century?
The New Zealand Stamp Collection 2000 captured the spirit of 2000. The album reflects on our times to treasure and our moments to remember over the previous years, from paying tribute to 100 years of royalty to Olympic gold. We celebrated Kiwiana and our childhood companions. We took to the air with winged friends, and we even relived the thrill of riding in our favourite cars, letting the road unwind before us. All the while, the sunrise of a new dawn became a memory as our year marched on.
Take a visual journey through our nation’s stamp album, a time capsule of our past and present for us, for our friends around the world, and for future generations. It was a collection of stories woven around one of the simplest and most recognised symbols of a nation’s identity – its stamps.
Each stamp tells a story and these stories are told by some very special New Zealandsers. Our contributing writers explore a diversity of subjects from our scenic splendour to our leadership in the conservation of threatened species.
The New Zealand Stamp Collection 2000 is a high quality pictorial album and a fascinating read.
