My design focuses on the North-Pole, so close to my homeland - Iceland. To illustrate the effect that warmer climate has on the the Poles I use thermocromatic ink wich dissapears when the stampsheet is heated. In COLD state is shows ice and glaciers in the year 2009, but when HOT it illustrates how little ice is estimated to be left in the year 2100.
Size of the mini-sheet is 80x120 mm
Printed in 3 pantone colors offset + a thermocromatic ink in photogravure.
Printed by Österreichische Staatsdruckerei GmbH.
