History with humour - Olé!
Learn history with humour! That is the intention behind this magnificent book, which Correos has produced with the well-known cartoonists Gallego and Rey, portraying the history of Spain with their own unique sense of humour.
The second volume of this book continues telling its story through the drawings and stamps which Gallego and Rey designed from 2002 to 2017, when they interpreted the history of Spain in the form of witty stamps for the post office, with four mini sheets of 48 stamps in the Correspondencia Epistolar Escolar series. The collection was completed in 2017 with the issue of two more mini sheets on the 19th and 20th centuries, each comprising 12 comic strips and one stamp.
This second edition was published in June 2019. It includes four chapters that continue from volume I, which was published in 2018, and concludes the history of Spain:
From Cervantes to Godoy
From Trafalgar to Alfonso XIII
From the Generation of ‘98 to Juan Carlos I
It includes 4 mini sheets:
This is undoubtedly a splendid work, and completely unique, telling the story of Spain from a humorous, witty and ironic perspective.
The first volume of the book will be launched this September
