Popular Fairy Tales on Zazzle Postage Stamps

Why postage stamps? It started when I found this lovely Little Red Riding Hood piece by minoule. It was a tiny still of a greater world, and a more reconciliatory interpretation of the original Grimm's fairy tale. I've always loved fairy tale stories. Whether they're fairy tales for kids or adult fairy tales, the stories evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity about other worlds and lives. I wanted to find more stories, more interpretations (and am continually searching for more!). These are some that I found: popular fairy tales contained in a postage stamp.
