This Is Not a Boat #1, Czechoslovakia - Announcing the Beginning of Elephant Week, and the Extension of the 365 Boats Countdown
When I first began the 365 Boats countdown I was anticipating an April 1st release date for Jonathan and the Big Blue Boat. Since then the release date has been pushed forward (or backward, depending on your point of view) to June 7, 2010. I know, I know, we're all a little disappointed. But I say, why not take advantage of a little extra time? I thought we'd use the extra days to highlight some great non-boat stamps, stamps with themes that pertain to Jonathan in other ways. Jonathan picks up a number of new friends on his voyage—a mountain goat, a whale, a yes, an elephant. So this week I thought we'd take some time out of our regularly scheduled boat countdown to focus on some of my favorite elephant stamps.
This one reminds me quite a bit of this illustration from Jonathan:
