    The German post authorities pay tribute to the country’s most popular author/illustrator of children books, Janosch. (Critical voices might call such an issue rather a commercial plug than a tribute, since Janosch is fortunately alive and kicking.)

    The two stamps, Segelboot (Sailboat) and Ostern (Easter) feature his best-known character, the Tigerente (Tiger Duck), next to others. For the typography, both styles of FF Hands by the Letterror “random twins” have been used: Just van Rossum’s FF JustLeftHand for the year and, in all-caps, for the country; Erik van Blokland’s FF ErikRightHand for the value.
