A stamp commemorating Czech jazz and the leading Czech jazz artists, such as Jaroslav Ježek, Jiří Šlitr, Jiří Suchý, Jiří Stivín, and Karel Růžička Sr., has been issued by Czech Post in May 2018.
The designer, Jiří Slíva, approached the theme with appropriate use of humour: the stamp portrays the Czech lion with a typical jazzman’s headgear and saxophone.
The Z-stamp whose current value corresponds to CZK 41 can be used to pay for the international priority service International Ordinary Mail up to 50 g to non-European countries.
The PRAGA 2018 Organizing Committee representatives met during the visit of WSC Israel 2018 Stamp Exhibition with Mr. Christoph Gärtner of the Auktionshaus Christoph Gärtner (https://www.auktionen-gaertner.de) being the partner and official auctioneer to PRAGA 2018. We discussed the practical questions of the PRAGA organization and the further steps executed by both parties. Gärtner Auction House promoted PRAGA 2018 exhibition not only at the sales booth, but also by the roll-up displayed in the main exhibition hall of the Jerusalem event and by the leaflets distributed to the exhibition visitors.
Mr. Gärtner informed us about the rarities auction run within the official PRAGA 2018 program on August 16 – 17, 2018 in the second floor of the Clarion Congress Hotel. The material suppliers and the auction participants might still contact directly the Gärtner Auction House for the event (Auktionshaus Christoph Gärtner, Steinbeisstraße 6+8, D-74321 Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany; email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
WSC Israel 2018 organizers awarded the official flag of the FIP to the PRAGA 2018 representatives at a special ceremony during the Palmares dinner. PRAGA exhibition therefore took over the baton for the prominent stamp event organizers.
