We get lots of mail from our correspondents in France.
Here's a corner of stamps, not atypical, received from France last week.
One coincides with the (28 April) anniversary of the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust.
Another, the post-WW2 project for a united Europe.
Often we receive a mix of such stamps on any one envelope - a mix of dates, a mix of subjects, a mix of considered arrangment too - from senders who care about the exchange of signs.
Here also is a block of six from 1986 that celebrate French cinema and the Theatre of the Actors of Regard.
From the NY Times Nov 1986 :
The French now have a sheetlet of 10 stamps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of La Cinematheque Francaise, the French institution that includes a museum as well as a film projection theater. The French sheetlet was issued Sept. 22. It illustrates scenes from 10 French films and honors their directors.
The films are ''Vampires'' (Louis Feuillade), ''The Novel of a Cheater'' (Sacha Guitry), ''The Baker's Wife'' (Marcel Pagnol), ''The Belles of the Night'' (Rene Clair), ''Golden Cap'' (Jacques Becker), ''Grande Illusion'' (Max Lindner and Jean Renoir), ''The Mirror with Three Faces'' (Jean Epstein), ''Love Cry'' (Jean Gremillon), and ''The Wild Child'' (Francois Truffaut)
And what about Australian stamps? Thoughts arise of a favorite Mike Brown work :
The Little Sheep, 1972.
