The Irish post office, An Post, has just launched a special stamp that features a complete short story. The stamp, by Amsterdam-based (and Irish) The Stone Twins, celebrates the recognition of Dublin as a UNESCO City of Literature. The Twins about this project: “We wanted to avoid the usual visual clichés, such as images or quotes from the giants of Irish literature, such as Joyce, Beckett, Yeats, and Wilde. Instead we instigated a competition, in collaboration with Roddy Doyle’s ‘Fighting Words’ creative writing centre, inviting young people to write a story that captured the essence of Dublin.” The winning entry – image – was by teenager Eoin Moore. To give the stamp some distinctive power, the story was printed on fluorescent yellow. Very nice.
