On 1 October 1979 Faroe Islands issued a charming set of three stamps in honour of International Children's Year. Each stamp depicts a drawing made by a Faroe Islands child. I presume there was some form of contest and there were three winners. The stamps were engraved by Czeslaw Slania. And he has done a masterful job capturing the beauty of each of the children's drawings.
The 110o stamp features a girl wearing a festive costume. The original was drawn by Edel Davidsen, who was 8 years old.
The 150o stamp depicts a fisherman in a boat, complete with some fish swimming about beneath the boat. The original drawing was made by Rasmus Fossa, aged 7 years old.
The 200o stamp features two friends, perhaps playing, on the grass. The original was drawn by Snorri Peterson, aged 8.
These three stamps are truly delightful. I really like them.
Until next time...
Stay Slania Crazy!
