BUY a couple of stamps and get a recipe book.

The SA Post Office said yesterday it will issue a free recipe booklet containing recipes that feature six kinds of nutritious, easy-to-grow vegetables, with stamps featuring the greens.

Customers who buy six or more stamps on August 12 will receive the recipe booklet.

The philatelic division of the Post Office “had great fun testing the recipes”, said Johan van Wyk of the SA Post Office. “We included favourite family recipes from our staff members and we love the thought of sharing them with all of South Africa.”

The stamps, illustrated by Will Lourens, a student of the Open Window School of Visual Communication, feature spinach, beetroot, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage and butternuts. Lourens used colour pencils for his illustrations, “because it is natural and down to earth”. — WR.
