  1. According to the official North Korean stamp catalogue the designer of this stamp was Kim Tong Han. And indeed, that is the name written on the paper slip (in the box to the right) shown in the exhibit: 김동한.

    Truly a design style that is sorely missed in this super safe and sanitised corporate world we all are now living in.
    Thank you Petr for asking your question and giving us all the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful work of art.
