Illustrators, of course I love this theme :-)I hadn't seen this stamp nor the stamp sheet before. According to the FDC's which I saw on ebay.nl the sheet has been issued in 2001.And I see also John Held jr is honoured by a stamp - would he be the same John Held jr as the mail artist?
Thanks for adding the year, Heleen, I completely forgot to come back and edit this post :)
And it is even on the stamp - doh!
I didn't notice it on the stamp either, until reading your comment :-)
I shall have to look out for more illustrators as I certainly was not aware of her before.
Me either. I also wasn't aware of the sheet of stamps, which is really fascinating.
This stamp is gorgeous, as the whole set is. I think I haven't got any of the 20 stamps!Today you came to my Sunday Stamps subject! ;)
That's true :)
I've not seen any of these stamps, what a superb sheet, great link. So many illustrators are not credited in old publications, the unsung heroes.
I was just thinking today that all of our lives have been influenced by countless illustrators, yet I bet most of us (me included) cannot name even one.
I always pay more attention to the illustrations than the words (books, adverts, etc), and yes these artists should get more credit
