Philatelic Friday: Classic Australian Kid's Books


If, like me, you didn't grow up in Australia, these books might be new to you too! This set of Australian stamps issued in 1985 and designed by Peter Leuver focused on classic children's books. Looks like I only received 4 out of the 5 (missing "Snugglepot and Cuddlepie" written by May Gibbs).

"Blinky Bill" (written by Dorothy Wall, published in 1933)


"Elves and Fairies" (written by Annie Rentoul & illustrated by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, published in 1916)


"Ginger Meggs" (a comic book character created by James Charles Bancks in 1921)


"The Magic Pudding" (written & illustrated by Norman Lindsay, published 1918)
