Charlotte and Emily Brontë
Although Emily and Charlotte Brontë are both better known as authors (for Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre respectively) they both also wrote a considerable amount of poetry. These stamp cards, PHQ cards, were issued in 1980 as part of a series of famous people (female authors). I have to be honest, I don't find them especially attractive designs.
Yesterday I was looking at a box of postcards "100 Writers in One Box" by Penguin. One of the reviewers on the Amazon site noted that only 14% of the postcards were women writers.
