Sunday Stamps - books, literature

this stamp shows a book
being read by Abraham Lincoln and his son Tad. this 1984 stamp is based on a Mathew Brady photograph. 
I have already shown the boy half of this pair of stamps from Lithuania for the Europa series in 2010 for Children's Literature. it featured an open book with a boy on one side and a girl on the other. now, thanks to a friend who has started saving her stamps for me (she is addicted to ebay), I have the set. this group of four with the girl and her cat is a bit wrinkled, but Suzanne very smartly decided to keep them together because of the postmark.

  10. I like the letters and numbers floating off the pages in the Lithuanian ones. I would guess Lincoln would read aloud with great skill, charming photograph.

  11. You have this appreciation of very specific things that makes me really happy. I like knowing you exist and that my way of bumbling through large things in the world is counterbalanced by your nuance.

  12. That photo of Lincoln with his son Tad is actually a wonderful picture. Isn't it unfortunate that people seem to be reading less. Maybe we can turn that around somehow.
