Item description for Stamps of Burma: A Historical Record Through 1988 by Min Sun Min...

The postage stamps of Burma, like stamps of other countries the world over, are a colorful visual record of a unique history. Stamps represent the British colonial government through the Japanese occupation, the British military administration, Burmese independence, the revolutionary council, and the Burmese Way to Socialism. But what of the most significant event in Burma's modern history - the pro-democracy uprising of 1988? No stamp depicts it.

This imaginative book features each stamp issued in Burma through 1988, ending with a series of stamps specially created by Min Sun Min, to be issued, he says, "one day, when Burma is free."

Reviews - What do customers think about Stamps of Burma: A Historical Record Through 1988?

A wonderful history lesson for philatelists!  Mar 28, 2010
A beautiful book for a philatelist! There's a lot in here I didn't know; this is an interesting book when learning the history of the region.
 
an excellent addition to the graphic design library  Jun 30, 2008
This is a book by a Burmese dissident turned graphic designer. It traces the design of Burmese stamps, and uses them as a vehicle to explore eras in that country's history. This book is a fine teaching example of how graphic design is formed by and informs cultural context and how its artifacts remain in the bloodstream of a culture long after an ideology has run its course. Anyone who teaches about the making of meaning in graphic design will do well to add this text to the bibliography.
