Bickel designs bring stamps to life

Lithuanian 1932-33 stamp issues raised funds for children
Four separate sets of regular and airmail “Lithuanian Child” issues helped to benefit the country’s orphaned and underprivileged children. Kathleen Wunderly’s Classic Stamps of the World column has all the details.
