Stamps With Personality

New Entries

This post is about the so called Personality stamps.. I must say that I don't collect topics, so for me these are just ordinary stamps..they have also the particularity of in some cases , having lots of history attached , to search and "dig"..Czechoslovakia Philately is  rich in this kind of stamps and has created a unique stile of design ... in the 50's, 60's and 70's beautiful stamps of these "topic" were issued, and some of them (a small number... ) are here presented..
These stamps must , like the others, be classified , so I prefer to gather some of them and do a post , for now ( I have much more to present...)

I could link each of these stamps to an article in the Net about the personalities shown... I decide not to do so , today , because it will be somehow annoying... I will link just one of the stamps...

It could exist a mistake in the classification of the 3rd of the stamps presented... As you can see in the other 3 stamps a book appears, and We know that the personalities are writers or poets..However, in the catalogs a painter is included in these set.. I think that could be a mistake... this stamp "match" perfectly...I must study this , with time..
