Hans Christian Andersen
for only GBP£2.09
More than 200 years after his birth, Hans christian Andersen remains one of the most famous Danes in history. His tales are read by people all over the world, not least in China, Japan and the US where he seems to be particularly popular.
Post Danmark's new stamp series shows themes and motifs from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales. As his stories are internationally known, the idea is to commision foreign artists to design the motifs. The Chinese designer Shen Jiahong has created the first four stamps, featuring motifs from 'The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep', 'The Nightgale', 'The Wild Swans' and 'What the old man does is always right'. Shen Jiahong and Post Danmark agreed that the stamps should be engraved in the normal manner but printed in the normal manner but printer with white intaglio colour instead of the usual black.
