The Thorvaldsen Society Christmas Stamps (finished)
The National Library has opened a Christmas exhibition with a collection of the Thorvaldsen Society´s Christmas stamps. The Thorvaldsen Society is Icelands first women society, founded in 1875. The society´s first Christmas stamps were published in 1913 as a fundraising project for various charities and they have thus been published for one hundred years. Many of the Icelandic nation´s best artists have lent the society their paintings or painted special ones to be used on the stamps.
