Thought I'd share this 06/26/2011 news article prompted by the USPS's recent release of the Mark Twain stamp a few days ago:

http://flavorwire.com/190424/mark-t...p-collecting

The article also offers a link to this website on books and authors on stamps:

http://faculty.citadel.edu/hutchiss...0Revised.htm

It seems to me there must be a multitude of other worldwide stamps on this subject, which prompts me to start this topical post.

Anyone specifically collect this topic? Any additions to this thread will be welcomed.

If yes, my first question is: is this author British or Australian?

Colette was the surname of the French novelist and performer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954). She is best known for her novel Gigi, upon which Lerner and Loewe based the stage and film musical comedies of the same title. Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Colette, designed and engraved by Czeslaw Slania, and issued by Monaco as one of eight stamps in a "famous people" souvenir sheet on May 14, 1996, Scott No. 199g, plus a photo of Colette in her somewhat younger years.

Of cousre....Edward Stanley Gibbons. I've been wracking my brains (the little I have left) searching for the "Author"


22crows, your knowledge is truly amazing.
Is there anything you don't know?

And Rod...what can I say. You are one of the mainstays of
this community. Your informative and witty posts make this
more than a mere stamp forum but a place to spend many enjoyable
hours.
Actually the wife says too many wasted hours.

If anyone is interested, I have ten pages typewritten list of "Literature on Stamps" I can scan to a pdf copy and email to anyone who may be interested.

It is listed by Scott Numbers by Country, and I am fairly certain, no longer complete, but will be happy to share with those looking for international checklist.

Email via forum.

Here is an image of a semi-postal stamp honoring Valentin Louis Georges Eugène Marcel Proust, a French novelist, critic, and essayist best known for his monumental À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), which was published in seven parts between 1913 and 1927. This stamp features a portrait of Proust and a view of the Saint-Hilaire bridge over the Loir river at Illiers-Combray. The stamp was designed and engraved by Jean Pheulpin, and issued by France on February 12, 1966, Scott No. B396, Y&T No. 1472.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was a German writer, pictorial artist, biologist, theoretical physicist, and polymath. He is considered the supreme genius of modern German literature. Here is an image of a semi-postal stamp designed after a detail from a famous portrait of Goethe as a traveler in the Roman Campagna (1787) by German painter Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein (1751-1828), printed by lithogravure, and issued by East Germany (DDR) on July 20, 1949 for the 300th anniversary of Goethe's birth, Scott No. 10NB7, Michel No. 235, plus a photo of Tischbein's painting..
