Along with the stamp, the First Day Cover (FDC) with the FDC rubber stamp has been issued, using Stunder’s work Imrich Zay, which is currently housed at the Bojnice Museum.

The motif of the second stamp is one of the crucial photographs of Martin Martinček, called After the Milking. At the same time, the FDC rubber stamp will be issued with the domicile of the town of Liptovský Mikuláš, the SITA newswire wrote. The motif of the FDC is another photo of Martinček from the cycle The World Unseen – The Coquette.
