StampNews.com is glad to inform that German Post produced welfare stamps depicting the scenes from "Sleeping Beauty". The issue consists of three stamps that were released on the 5th of February.
"Sleeping Beauty" by Charles Perrault or "Little Briar Rose" by the Brothers Grimm is a classic fairy tale involving a beautiful princess, a sleeping enchantment, and a handsome prince. The version collected by the Grimms was an orally transmitted version of the originally literary tale published by Charles Perrault in Histoires ou contes du temps passé in 1697.
This in turn was based on Sun, Moon, and Talia by Giambattista Basile (published posthumously in 1634), which was in turn based on one or more folk tales. The earliest known version of the story is Perceforest, composed between 1330 and 1344 and first printed in 1528.
