'Winter Tales' - postage stamps by Denmark

Denmark has issued a set of postage stamps on the theme of "Winter Tales".

According to the Post Danmark website, these stamps are the fruit of a unique partnership between graphic designer Maria Bramsen and writer Camilla Hubbe.

Bramsen and Hubbe have known each other since their schooldays, and have many years of experience of working together on books and exhibition projects.

Camilla Hubbe took the first step in the stamp project by writing a story. She then passed the idea on to Maria Bramsen, who immediately set to work devising illustrations. "The idea was to create a kind of comic-strip. A tiny everyday fairytale in four drawings," say the two artists.
