    Dutch stamp series issued by Koninklijke PTT Nederland NV on the occasion of the international philatelic exhibition FEPAPOST 94 in the Netherlands Congress Centre, The Hague. The stamps show three bird species; the barnacle goose (Branta leucopsis), the bluethroat (Luscinia svecica), and the garganey (Anas querquedula).

    The stamps were designed by Ben Bos at FORMatie2, using photographs by Hans Gebuis. For the typography, Bos paired Ellington (Michael Harvey, 1990) with FF Meta (Erik Spiekermann, 1991). Memory of the Netherlands has additional images of sketches and preliminary studies.
