The Tempest

 Sunday Stamps on Monday...

This week's theme is Fatherly Figures. I chose a stamp from Royal Mail that features a line from the Shakespeare play The Tempest, thought to be one of the last he penned. This stamp was part of a set issued in 2016 to mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death.

The main character is Prospero, a father. And Shakespeare was a father himself, and can be considered a father of English writing.

 In the US, barns are commonly associated with rural life. Here is one on a presorted rate stamp, and a few on postcard rate stamps.

 Today's Sunday Stamps theme is movement, and I have this first class stamp from Finland issued in 2008 showing a downhill skier. Impossible to appreciate in a flat image, this is a lenticular stamp that shows a different image when you tilt it.
