Homage for IF

Have you heard of Postage People? I wonder if H. C. Andersen would appreciate the postal stamp image placed on top of a different figure, the opposite sex, too? It wasn't until after I had decided to pair these two that I realised the ironic significance between the book the woman is holding and the famous author. This postage stamp is one magnificent piece of artwork! Credit where credit is due ~ I pay homage to Hans and the artist that created this amazing stamp! Read about the famous Danish writer here. A little "Red & White Danish Dynamite"......
