A few days ago I found an interesting collection of stamps at the post office:
Jesienią brytyjski Royal Mail wydał nowy zestaw znaczków opowiadający historię jednego z najbardziej znanych na świecie niedźwiadków i wszystkich jego przyjaciół. Kolekcja z Kubusiem Puchatkiem z 12 października, 2010 jest uchonorowaniem 84 rocznicy wydania książki brytyjskiego pisarza A. A. Milne'a. Na znaczkach są oryginalne ilustracje z książki.
"This autumn a new set of Royal Mail stamps are set to tell the story of one of the world’s most famous bears and all his friends. The Winnie-the-Pooh stamp collection, issued on 12 October, celebrates the enduring popularity and universal appeal of the hunny-loving character, famously created by A.A. Milne for his son, Christopher Robin.
Philip Parker, Royal Mail Stamps spokesperson, said: “We know that Winnie-the-Pooh is a stamp issue that will rekindle many fond memories for people of all ages.
“He is rightly regarded as the world’s most popular classic children’s book character and we are delighted that we could use E.H. Shepard’s original illustrations to bring Pooh and his friends to life on millions of stamps.”
