Czech jazz has gone global

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.
