When ‘Aesthetic Advisor’ Paul Hefting left the Dutch Post & Telecom ‘Art & Design’ department, a publication (De Ideale Postzegel) was issued to celebrate his many contributions to the company. Ton was invited to contribute. A imaginary stamp was design and ‘published’ in a simulated newspaper article: “Completely new stamp system introduced – because with the departure of Paul a way had to be found to issue stamps without the involvement of graphic designers”. The end of a long history of excellent stamp design in The Netherlands. 1994 © PTT
