IN COMMEMORATION OF BERTOLT BRECHT


    Bulgarian philately traditionally celebrates anniversaries of important persons in world culture by issuing special postage stamps. The first issue of this type, planned for 1998, is already a fact. On 10 February the posts offered to the public a stamp, an illustrated print-stamped envelope, and a special postmark on the occasion of the 100th birthday anniversary of the eminent German playwright Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956).  Designer of the postage stamp is Stefan Despodov. Its nominal price is 120 levs, its measures - 25x40 mm, and its circulation - 1 million pieces.
