State-owned postal service firm PT Pos Indonesia has launched a series of stamps on the theme of Dilan 1990, a recent movie that has attracted 6.24 million viewers by its 39th day of screening. The stamps were unveiled at the Graha Pos Indonesia lobby in Bandung on Tuesday.
The four stamp designs were taken from the book the film was adapted from. The four stamps in caricature style depict Dilan approaching Milea from behind while riding a motorcycle, Dilan sitting side by side with Milea, Dilan standing near his motorcycle and Milea riding with Dilan on his CB100 motorcycle in the rain.
