Magyar Posta’s stamps feature a few of the storybook illustrations of the Hungarian Kossuth Prize winning graphic designer Károly Reich (1922-88).
The designs of the stamps, the border and the first day cover capture a few incidents from the story of a little bear much loved by Hungarian readers, Vackor. (All the drawings appeared as illustrations in the children’s book by István Kormos, The Tales of Vackor.)

FRANCE - europa cept 2010

In the second Post this evening i would like to show you the envelope which was sent from France (with the Monaco issue in it! -> look here
Not the best stamp ever from France (i mean: the last year issue was definitive more spectacular) BUT i love evry single stamp and envelope which make their way to my mailbox. Merci Beaucoup a Jerome et Emma pour les deux choses manifique!

Date of issue: 09.05.2010
Dora, the young girl sitting on a pile of books, absorbed in her reading, shows us the great concentration of a child reading a book, and at the same time evokes the importance of editorial production for the youth. In the background, the illustrations remind us of some stories from our childhood, such as Cinderella, the Beauty and the Beast, la chèvre de Monsieur Seguin. The contrast between a "realistic" technique (the young girl) and more "illustrative" (the fairy-tales) allows us to make a link between the real and the imaginary...

MONACO - europa cept 2010

during the last week i received several first day cover, stamps fixed on postcards and cover, elated to the europa issue this year.
 Jerome and his daughter Emma were so kind to send me the Monaco issue fixed on a card (see above) - Bécassine et son autoportrait.
I'm absolutely amazed about this kind gesture! As i don't collect mint stamps i deliberate whether i send the card to the Monaco philately office... just for the stamp? what do you think of it?

Date of issue: 05.05.2010

This stamp represents a child reading a book, and emphasises the educational aspect of books that enable children to learn and understand the world.

Date of issue: 05.05.2010

The stamp depicts several children discovering the fun aspect of books. The book appears as a common symbol to all the children in the world.

in honour to my father - I'm sending him once every year something. what else than the FDC from the Europa stamp? I love my dad you have to know I'm a only child - so my dad is everything for me. And he was it who fixed me with collecting stamps. He began when he was 6 years old. 46 years ago. I think I had my first stamp as I didn't eat everything which comes into my hands. in the meantime i'm the collector - he doesn't have the time and just buy those new issues in the 4er block (don't know the word in English). Hope he will have a smile when he gets it!
