The Rose of Versailles Cover

On Saturday I got not only a postcard but also two covers including one from Japan.

With a great stamp:
Definitive (from set of twelve) (issued 2015)
The Rose of Versailles (from set of ten) (issued 10-06-2011)
with a matching special postmark

The Rose of Versailles is one of the best-known titles in shōjo manga. It was created by Riyoko Ikeda and was published between 1972 and 1973. The manga tells the story of a young woman before and during the French Revolution torn between class loyalty and her desire to help the impoverished. It was adapted for anime, films and musicals.


Thank You very much Masako!
