Cover from Bulgaria no. 6
It's not very frequent that Czech people draw attention of foreign postal administrations, but here is an example from Bulgaria that it does happen:)
Here is a cover with the right-hand part of a souvenir sheet featuring works and a portrait of Alphonse Mucha. Mucha was born here in Moravia in 1860 and became famous especially in France due to his distinctive style of Art Nouveau painting and graphic design, and he also designed stamps, and his works also appeared on them, like, for example, here (2010 self adhesive stamps with the overseas rate)
The Bulgarian sheet was issued on 23 July 2010 (the year of the 150th anniversary of Mucha's birth), in 20,000 copies, and the 1 leva stamp on the cover above bears the postmark of Sofia, 21 September 2010.
Thank you, Lilia:)
