On Monday, March 20, Taiwan’s Chunghwa Post (Zhōnghuá Yóuzhèng / 中華郵政) issued new stamps commemorating Zhuyin Fuhao (aka bopomofo, bopo mofo, or bpmf).
This week’s release of NT$6 (about US$0.20) stamps covers the first ten letters of bopomofo: 「ㄅ、ㄆ、ㄇ、ㄈ、ㄉ、ㄊ、ㄋ、ㄌ、ㄍ、ㄎ」.
|Zhuyin Fuhao||Hanyu Pinyin|
On the stamps, each letter/symbol is paired with a place (e.g., ㄇ (M) is for 馬公 (Magong, the capital of Penghu).
I bought a nice sheet of the stamps earlier. Get ’em while they’re hot!
