  1. J'aime tous ces timbres hélas trop rares qui mettent les écrivaines à l'honneur :)

  2. A diverse reading list which would keep one entertained, and thinking. In these times of restricted movement who wouldn't want to travel with the redoubtable Freya Stark.

    1. Lukily, we can keep travelling thanks to books...

  3. An impressive selection - and you have a much better picture of the Le Guin stamp than I do.

    1. This one arrived on a postcard. I love it!

  4. Freya Stark: I got bogged sown in one of her books and should really pick it up again. Excellent female writers!

  5. So many pensive looking writers (with the exception of de Beauvoir with her broad smile!). I haven't thought about Freya Stark in a long time. May be time for a reread...

  6. Such a wonderful variety of stamp designs!
    And no doubt that the books written vary much, too. Although I must confess that I only know four of the authors by name.. And I've read only one book by one of them (the impressive book 'Uncle Tom's cabin', I read it as a teen at my late grandmother's home when I stayed there in my holidays).

    1. How a stamp can bring back memories of decades ago :-)

      Thank you for sharing all these beautiful stamps!

  7. This could be a great reading list for the months ahead!


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
