Especially for a great article about the artists, brothers Vasnetsov, along with a colleague from Estonia, so I prepared an envelope with a personalized postage stamps:


Viktor Vasnetsov is a famous Russian artist, author of the paintings on folklore, fairy tales and historical themes.
I would like to see how the U.S. philatelists use personal postage stamps

Love that Sleepy Hollow stamp! One of the neat things about topical collections is the way they get you to look at your collection in a whole new way!

Druon Antigoon was a mythical giant who guarded a bridge on the river Scheldt in Antwerp, exacting a toll from all who wished to cross the river. For those who refused, Antigoon severed one of their hands and threw it into the river. Eventually, Antigoon was slain by a young Roman soldier named Brabo, who cut off the giant's own hand and flung it into the river. Here is an image of a semi-postal stamp depicting Brabo performing this feat, printed by photogravure, and issued by Belgium on June 25, 1944, Scott No. B386.

Issun-boshi ("One-Inch Boy") is the subject of a fairy tale from Japan. While defending a princess from an Oni (ogre), the tiny but brave lad is swallowed alive by the monster. However, the boy defeats the Oni by pricking him from within with his needle/sword. The Oni spits out Issun-boshi and, as he runs away, drops the magical Uchide's Mallet. To reward him for his bravery, the princess uses the power of the mallet to grow Issun-boshi to full size; eventually, Issun-boshi and the princess marry. Here are images of a set of three stamps depicting key scenes from this fairy tale, printed by photogravure, and issued by Japan on June 10, 1974, Scott Nos. 1166-68.
