Dresden, Germany

This is a stamp and commemorative envelope commemorating French aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's very famous children's book "The Little Prince". He wrote the book while living in exile in the United States in 1942. Around the time of its publication, he left for North Africa to join the Free French Air Force. His plane disappeared during a reconnaissance flight over the Mediterranean in July 1944 and he was never seen again.
