Sunday Stamps - Writers/Composers

Sunday Stamps is set by the blog See it on a Postcard and today's theme is Writers, Composers, so I bring you a mix.
I have not read any of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works, but have heard/seen adaptations of Sherlock Holmes. This stamp was one of 10 commemorating 10 Eminent Britons back in 2009.
Next up is Benjamin Britten, a composer and pianist. This stamp was one of 10 commemorating 10 Great Britons in 2013.
These stamps, Hollywood Composers, I found in an antiques store, a whole sheet for less than face value at the then exchange rate. I bought it, and started enclosing a few stamps to a couple of US penpals for them to use (to me or to anyone else, or even to scrapbook/journal). 


  1. The Hollywood composers is interesting - I've not heard of any of them before, so i must look them up.
    I'm also not sure I actually read Conan Doyle, but I thoroughly enjoyed both Sherlock and Elementary.

  2. I like that you included some composers as the rest of us went for writers. The colors of the US set are fantastic.

  3. Max Steiner is the only composer of the post that says something to me. I love the stamps, though. Very hollywoodense!

    I read a lot of Conan Doyle as a teenager. Probably in very bad translations.
