The Republic of Umba is an imaginary country, with very peculiar characters, landscapes, animals and vegetation. As it is not about any country, its history is also told in a special way. Through postage stamps, we get to know their citizens, their customs and most characteristic elements that make the Republic of Umba a unique place. It is a work that talks about the imagination, especially that flows around when we are children. It also seeks to reclaim postal mail as a form of almost obsolescent communication. In these times, writing a letter requires a lot of courage, because it demands time, dedication and patience. This graphic work pays homage to such noble act.
