French Tourism Stamps from 1961

I haven’t had a chance to work on my stamp collection for some, but today was the day!

I scanned in a set of French stamps from 1961. They were designed to promote tourism.  I guess it worked in some sense as I picked them up in a Parisian stamp mart back in 2009!

I really love engraved stamps, and these colorful specimens fit the bill.

Below are my favorites from the set of 8. The entire set is visible on Flickr.
