Philately Fridays: German Federal Republic, 1960

Here's the story of Rotk├Ąppchen, better known as Little Red Riding Hood, as told through postage stamps. I love how much detail is achieved through such a stripped-down illustration style and limited color palette. More of these vintage fairy tale stamp series to come!

Philately Fridays: Canada, 1982

Here's one from Canada, celebrating 100 years of the Salvation Army. Really digging the thin gold lines and warm color scheme here.
