Visit the Richard Ellis Photographic Exhibition and get an idea of what Malta looked like in the early 20th century. The photographs focus exclusively on the General Post Office in Valletta and give us a good idea of the workings of the postal service both from the front counters and behind the scenes too!
Spend some time in front of the Emvin Cremona Exhibition. Widely regarded as one of Malta's finest 20th century artists, these artworks are but a sample of his collaboration with the Department of Posts. From 1957 - 1979 he produced more than 170 original designs for 62 sets of stamps. Gibbons Stamp Monthly has called his style "distinctively flamboyant, imaginatively conceived and beautifully executed". His artworks define and establish an imagery of innovation, often challenging the basic format of stamp design and his involvement in the design of Maltese postage stamps is considered as the "golden era" of Maltese philately.
