Cereals

Switzerland Postal Service will issue four new stamps that have postage values of 10, 15, 20, and 50 CHF named "Cereals" on the 4th of September 2008. These stamps depict images of four major cereal grains enjoyed throughout the world today. The grains are grinded up and made into flour which can then be used to make bread or some other type of food.
The saying that "Man does not live by bread alone" is not strictly accurate because bread really does contain all the nutrients we need to live on. About 60,000 years ago these grains were used to make gruel which cooled into flat cakes. The art of baking bread was not discovered until about 1800 BC when fermentation was discovered. Bread eventually replace gruel flat cakes and is now being produced in mills all over the world.

"Cereals" stamps can be purchased as a set of 4, sheets of 50, Strips of 10, Folder, Collection sheet or FDC's. The size of the stamps is 33mm x 28mm with a Serpentine die cut perforation. They will be printed by Joh. Enschede Printing using the Rotogravure printing method with 220gms paper.
