Inspired by my postcrossing friend Ana I've decided to participate in this week's edition of Sunday Stamps on Veridian's Postcard Blog xD The theme is folklore, and I have been looking eagerly through my rather small collection of covers, only to find this great item from Guatemala sent to me by Pat for the NCC RR!
All issued in 2010; the 1st stamp is from a set of 10 showing Textile Art of Guatemala. Other two stamps are from a set of 4 showing typical costumes of Guatemala, a continuation of a set issued in 2007. First is a costume of San Mateo Ixtatán (West Guatemala, Cuchumatanes mountain range), the second of Tecpán (South-Central Guatemala, on the Inter-American Highway). Gorgeous and unique cancellation! Thanks again Pat :))
