COVID 19: Slovak Stamp Designed by Karol Felix

The portrait of a young woman with partly covered face – the face mask adding, rather than taking from her beauty – celebrates the responsibility of people that helped stop the infection in Slovakia. The Slovak Post postage stamp was published on August 21, 2020. Karol Felix had added face masks also to the faces of women which, in his illustrations, adorn Erich Ondrejička’s poetry collection Volanie (Calling, 2020). Both the Slovak and the Czech face mask stamps were printed by the Hradištko Printing Works in the vicinity of Prague.
