The Guinness Book of World Records Stamp

Take a close look at these two stamps from Switzerland.

Switzerland Stamps for Collectors

The stamp on top, which looks blurry and blotchy, is not damaged or poorly produced.  It is an aerial photograph of 11,000 gymnasts.  The gymnasts are arranged to create the image depicted on the lower stamp.

The “gymnast” photograph was taken on June 22, 1996, and the remarkable stamp was released just five days later.
