ILLUSTRATIONS FOR CHILDREN BY ALEXANDER BOZHINOV


    Alexander Bozhinov (1878-1968) has been considered the “law-maker” in the field of cartoons and illustration. Moreover, the artist used his pen almost as skillfully as his brush. Among other things, he wrote two books for children, which were constant companions of generations of young Bulgarian boys and girls.

    This particular side of Bozhinov’s work has been chosen by postage stamp emitters to mark the anniversaries of the artist’s birthday and death. On 24 February 4 stamps in a small sheet, an illustrated print-stamped cover and a special postmark under the common title “Illustrations for children” were released. The number of circulated sheets is 200 thousand. Each of the stamps has a face value of 120 levs and a 25x35 mm format. The author of its design is Boris Kitanov.
