This year's postage stamp designed mainly for children shows the heroes of tales of the writer V. Čtvrtek, Rumcajs, Manka and their fidgety little son Cipísek. They were designed by a leading Czech graphic designer Radek Pilař (1931–1993), the author of the figure of Večerníček inviting children for already more than 40 years to their bedtime television tale. R. Pilař was a universal artist of an extraordinary talent. Apart from being an illustrator he was also a painter, graphic designer, photograph assembler, stage designer, camera man and film director. He was the founder of the Czech video art, a new art discipline of video creation. In addition to the sheet of stamps the issue also includes philatelic book with 8 stamps and 2 coupons.
