I’m currently trying to catch up with my blogging by posting some gratuitious scans from my stamp collection. Today’s item is this year’s “Youth Philately” issue by the Belgian Post Office. it features Jacques Martin’s Alix.
Alix is a series of books in the Franco-Belgian adventure tradition, focusing on the adventures of a young foundling from Gaul who is adopted by a Roman gentleman and travels around the Roman Empire with his young friend, the Egyptian boy Enak. It has been a while since new books were published in this series, which makes you wonder whether next time the Post Office will actually choose a currently running book ?
