Global blue country and city guide Austria

Posted by rod - 03.12.2012

In this day and age people travel more than ever before. Especially weekend shopping trips to European cities have become very popular. City guides such as  the featured Global Blue have become very popular amongst travellers. For each issue Global Blue commissions an award winning illustrator to design their front cover.

Below are the Austrian cover designs. Each cover is beautifully illustrated and incorporates a pice of Austrian national pride. Be it Austria’s famous classical music, their legendary cakes or their beautiful valleys and skiing slopes. Each issue has something unique about it.

designbyst recently redesigned the guide and loaded up all of the issues onto their flickr account.

These stamps have been issued to commemorate the long lived embroidery industry in Austria which dates back to 18th century and the Alpine plans. I never knew that stamps can also be created using different materials.
