The Stamps of Tuva

Until Tuvan musicians and singers began their conquest of the world in the 1990s, Tuva's main claim to fame was the interesting series of postage stamps issued from the 1920s to the 1940s.  In fact, it was the memory of these stamps that prompted Richard Feynman to ask "whatever happened to Tannu Tuva", eventually launching Friends of Tuva and, a few years later, this web site.

For your viewing pleasure we present images of some of these stamps.  Perhaps some day we'll get around to adding some more images!

For more images, for now you can see The Postage Stamps of Tuva.  If there's a particular year you'd like to see, let us know.
