Organisations' Special Events - Sunday Stamps II

I spent most of the 1980s working in Norway and that was the decade for the centenary of some of their organisations

Norway - Electricity Supply, 100 years - 1985
1981 was the International Year of the Handicapped.

Norway - 1981
There were two stamps commemorating the handicapped, the second at 2.20 Kroner. Both showed the handicapped as an equal part of society.

The Norwegian Graphic Artists Federation celebrated its centenary in 1982.

Norway - 1982

The last stamps's design is amazing. I couldn't be otherwise to celebrate the centenary of Norwegian Graphic Artists Federation, of course!

That is a super stamp of the men on the wire, very atmospheric.

I love the dramatic effect of the men working on the electricity lines.

The 1981 stamp has an influence of Edvard Munch.
The blue one looks like dangerous work.
