China Post is to issue a set of one special stamp entitled China National Archives of Publications and Culture on July 30, 2022. The denomination of the stamp is 1.2 yuan, and the planned circulation is 7.9 million sets.
From the perspective of national strategic resources, China National Archives of Publications and Culture (hereinafter referred to as CNAPC) coordinates and promotes the collection, utilization, inheritance and development of Chinese bibliology resources, which is of great significance for further promoting the building of China into a socialist country with great cultural strength. CNAPC comprises one headquarters and three branches, with the headquarters in Beijing and three branches in Xi'an, Hangzhou and Guangzhou, respectively. Together, these archives serve as a general database of national bibliology resources and the Chinese culture seed gene bank. With bibliology resources at all times and across the world that bear the imprint of Chinese civilization as collections, CNAPC is a comprehensive venue integrating functions of libraries, museums, archives, art galleries and so on.
This set of stamp is designed by Shi Yuan. The stamp image is axisymmetric. It takes Wenhan Pavilion—the core building of CNAPC Beijing headquarters as the main body, and turquoise landscape painting as visual elements, which gives the image the charm of traditional Chinese paintings, and fully demonstrates the profound cultural inheritance of CNAPC, thus typifying traditional aesthetics.
This set of stamp is printed by Beijing Stamp Printing House Company Limited with photogravure technology.
The stamp is available for six months at the designated postal outlets, online mall of China Philately (https://jiyou.11185.cn), the mobile app of China Post, the WeChat Mall for philatelic products in the official WeChat account and the WeChat mini program of China Post Group.
