For the first time ever Post Danmark issues a collection of Hans Christian Andersen’s stamps designed by a Chinese designer. To mark the launch of the new stamps an event was held at the Royal Danish Embassy on Friday 25th of May.
To celebrate the day, Chinese and Danish children did drawings and paper cuttings in the spirit of H.C. Andersen inspired by real mannequins walking around the children. Famous Beijing Radio host and winner of Golden Microphone Award and a number of international prizes, Xiaoyu Jiejie were invited by the Embassy to read H.C. Andersen’s fairy tales to the children.
The Chinese and Danish national postal services have had a comprehensive cooperation since 2009. The collaboration has resulted in a collection of Chinese designed stamps with motifs from H.C. Andersen’s fairytales, which will be published on the 1th of June 2012 in both China and Denmark.
