Αναπαύσου εν ειρήνη, Alec Issigonis. One of the Britishest icons in the known world, the Mini was designed by Turkish-born Greek-German Issigonis during his illustrious tenure at British Motor Company. This stamp enthusiast’s kitty was named Mini Minor in commemoration of the Mini and its alluring design–pocket-sized creativity! [Our Mini was not so mini, at least in relation to other kitties…] Sir Alec died on this date in 1988 at the age of 81.
