On February 21, 1985 Berlin issued this 50 (pf) stamp (Mi #730) to commemorate the 200th birthday of writer Bettina von Arnim (1785-1859).

The image for the stamp is a recess-printed replication of Emil Ludwig Grimm's (1790-1863) etching of von Arnim holding a book. Grimm's precise drawing technique clearly shows the raised bands (cord-bound spine) of the leather bound book.

On August 22, 1972 the DDR issued this 50 (pf) stamp (Mi #1781) to commemorate the International Year of the Book. "Young Worker Reading", the image on the stamp, is by graphic artist and painter Jutta Damme (1929-2002). Damme taught at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts.

From de.zxc.wiki, "In 1972 she was awarded the DDR Art Prize. In 1979 she was awarded the Bronze Patriotic Order of Merit in a collective."
