On 28 January 2014, UNPA will issue a “Greetings from New York” personalized stamp sheet. The sheet is composed of ten US$ 1.15 denominated stamps which feature various images from United Nations Headquarters in New York. The sheet was designed by Rorie Katz (United Nations).
The background of the sheet shows an image of the newly renovated Trusteeship Council Chamber taken in April 2013 (UN Photo/Rick Bajomas). The Chamber has been restored and updated with new Danish furniture, designed by the Danish design-duo Kasper Salto and Thomas Sigsgaard. The tabs of the stamps are images of the renovation process at UN Headquarters, New York. All photos are courtesy of the UN photo library.
