postage stamp, Sweden, Alice Babs, Jussi Bjorling


During March, 1999, the Swedish government will release a most attractive postage stamp (one only) featuring Jussi and the once very popular jazz singer Alice Babs, who appeared with JB in the film "Resan till dej?" and whose recordings are still available on CD. The single stamp will be included in the second part of a series of stamps illustrating life in Sweden during the 20th century. The photograph of Jussi used on the stamp is apparently the same as the one used as a model for Jussi's statue in Borlange.
