The Tom of Finland stamps have encouraged considerable discussion among supporters and critics.

Understandably some from more conservative quarters are concerned with the extreme homoeroticism of the art of Tom of Finland.
“The extent of the international attention received has been unprecedented. Tom of Finland works are unique and known worldwide. The works selected for the stamps are among the most tame in the artist’s portfolio, but nevertheless display his characteristic style. The presentation of the stamps has received praise worldwide,” says Development Director Markku Penttinen from The Finnish Postal Service .
