Philately Fridays: German Federal Republic, 1960

Here's the story of Rotk├Ąppchen, better known as Little Red Riding Hood, as told through postage stamps. I love how much detail is achieved through such a stripped-down illustration style and limited color palette. More of these vintage fairy tale stamp series to come!
