Liechtenstein 2016 Without us - Postcard fold souvenir sheets

Issue date - 14 November 2016

Liechtenstein Post has issued a special 3 set souvenir sheet in the postcard fold style featuring Swiss illustrator Angelo Boog hypothetical question to himself - What would happen to Liechtenstein if there were no more people?

The collages depict buildings, monuments, everyday objects and sections of landscape from the Principality in an imagined future devoid of human beings in twenty, one hundred and five hundred years from now. The disintegration of buildings, objects and cultivated landscape is tangible, nature spreads its tentacles and reclaims its space, numerous new animal species establish habitats. The artist was inspired by American author Alan Weisman who tackled this subject head-on in his book “The World Without Us” published in 2007.
