Three new stamps from Croatian Post's long-running series


Croatian Post has released three new commemorative postage stamps from the "Famous Croats" series. The stamps were designed by Sabina Resic, a designer from Zagreb, printed in 100 000 copies and issued in a 20-stamp sheet. Each stamp has a face value of HRK 1.60.

Croatian Post first issued stamps from the "Famous Croats" series in 1997 and this year the stamps feature: Grigor Vitez (the first modern children's author in Croatia who wrote numerous poems and short stories; he was also the editor of several children's books and magazines), August Harambasic (a gifted Croatian poet, orator and politician from the late 19th and early 20th century) and Jagoda Truhelka (a teacher and one of the most revered authors of children's literature in the first half of the 20th century).
