Tom of Finland to appear on stamps in September


Stamps will also feature watercolors, bridges, everyday life and Christmas

In September-October 2014, Itella Posti will release seven new sets of stamps, containing a total of 33 new designs. It is a great collection to choose from; the subjects of the new stamps include male drawings by Tom of Finland, autumnal yard and garden scenes painted by Urpo Martikainen, and Jaakko Tähti’s photos of Finnish bridges. Other subjects for the end-of-the-year stamps include signs of sky and the change in everyday Finland – and, of course, Christmas.

Confident and proud homoeroticism

The autumn’s stamp series begins September 8 with Tom of Finland, who is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world. His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion. In his works, Tom of Finland utilized the self-irony and humor typical of subcultures.

During his career, Tom of Finland produced more than 3,500 drawings. The two drawings on the stamp sheet were selected by graphic artist Timo Berry, who designed the stamp, and Susanna Luoto, the Finnish representative of the foundation named after Tom of Finland operating in Los Angeles.

The drawings on the stamp sheet represent strong and confident male figures typical of their designer. “The sheet portrays a sensual life force and being proud of oneself. There is never too much of that in this northern country,” says Timo Berry. The miniature sheet contains three 1st class self-adhesive stamps.

  1. Hello there……its me again…..Don Laird…

    Homosexuality is a defect, plain and simple.

    Mother Nature figured it out years ago and introduced AIDS, in effect the defect dies when the defective dies.

    Of course we are deluged with stats like “10 PERCENT OF HUMANITY IS HOMO”!!!, when in reality, the latest studies out of Europe show 1 Homo per 68.9% of normal persons.

    Or, ‘EVERYONE GETS AIDS!!!” when in reality over 88% of AIDS cases are Homo’s.

    This is the sickness called homosexuality, plain and simple.

    Let the hating begin!!!!

    Mail me some shit!!!

    Try to have me fired!!!!

    Make my name synonymous with shit laced lube!!!

    Call me a homophobe!!!!

    Tell me I secretly want to be ass-fucked!!!

    Call my home late at night and threaten to kill me and my family!!!

    You know, all the usual Big Homo tactics.

    Well Ladies, as we all know, your little 15 minutes of fame has run its course, the backlash is going to hurt like a motherfucker, count on it……the time has come to put a few grotesque, sick, twisted, perverted and severely mentally ill sexual deviants back in the closet and nail the door shut……permanently……

    Now….where did I put that hammer and nails?????

  2. That looks remarkably like a cigarette that the ‘Leatherman’ is smoking.

    Surely the Finnish anti-smoking lobby will not sit still ( well, not as still the chappie sans-clothing ) while the Finnish postal service glamourises an anti-social and unhealthy sub-culture ?

  3. Seriously? They are going to put porn on postage stamps? How disgusting?!!
