Spanish Traditional Dances on Stamps

This article refers to the series of stamps issued by the Spanish Post in 2009, as single or double releases, totaling 12 stamps and picturing Spanish traditional dances from different regions. The stamps are issued as single stamps, stamps with vignettes, or minisheets, and have different sizes and orientation in order to capture the dynamics of the dances.

Several types of dances from several Spanish regions and dependencies are illustrated in this very nice series.

I recommend this series for beginner stamp collectors as it is quite cheap and not so difficult to collect.
