Project M—
Iranian stamps from Monarchies and Mullahs to Mardom


This study explores the collective identity and official culture of the Islamic Republic of Iran as it has been promoted through the official postage stamps released by the government between 1979 and 2019.

This collection has been divided and studied in detail based on identified thematic categories. Each category is then explored concerning the most important events and individuals that have influenced the country’s collective identity and cultural history not included in the official stamps.
