2016  Sheet of Japan Scott's 4064a-j, featuring the work of Mitsumasa Anno, including "Anno's Aesop."  $6 from The Plastic Card Collector, Wakefield, MA, through Ebay, March, '23.

Now, this is fascinating!  I would never have expected a stamp commemorating a fable book, and especially not from Japan.  What a surprise!  The book was, of course, published first in Japan in 1987 and then in the USA in English in 1989.  This acquisition marks the 29th country to have contributed fable-themed stamps to our collection!
