Malaria stamps and more

Check out these blasts from the past. Larry Fillion  has assembled an incredible collection of stamps on all things malaria. Nearly 150 ‘countries’ are represented – though some are colonies, others no longer exist, and many have changed names… Most seem to date from 1950s-70s when they were issued in support of the global malaria eradication effort. The artwork represents the spirit of those heady times: tumultuous change, aspirations of newly free societies, and confidence in the relentless advance of science and technology.
