Twelve Rhombs

Photo of a pattern of Star of David Shapes each made from twelve rhombs on an Israeli postal stamp that had been issued in 26.2.1953 is courtesy of stamp collector Dobush from Kfar Aza. Designer: Otte Wallish

From Wikipedia entry - Otte Wallish:

Otte Wallish


- was an émigré to Israel who established himself as a graphic designer and contributed to the symbolic self-representation of the Jewish state. Wallish was born in Vienna and emigrated to Palestine in 1934, a time of increasing peril for the Jews of Austria... During the 1930's and 1940's, Wallish worked on artistic arrangement, statistical graphs and other design aspects for books. In 1929, his own book was published, ABC: Ein Bilderbuch.
