Love and Chunghwa Post overcome plot by communist China

On International Day of Peace yesterday, the Chunghwa Post Co issued stamps featuring a young boy's painting that was at the center of a heart-wrenching tale of international intrigue and postal services.

The painting was disqualified from becoming a commemorative peace stamp issued by the UN because, it is thought, of China's objections. But like a philatelical phoenix, rising from the ashes of the young boy's shattered dreams, the painting has been resurrected in a series of 1 million NT$15 stamps, available at your local post office.

It is the first design by a student to be published as a stamp in Taiwan. In the past, only the works of established artists have been used.
