My friend Thomas from Belgium sent me this cover with the commemorative stamp of the bicentenary of birth of Louis Braille issued in February 2009. The 1 euro value brings the image of hands reading a text in braille, the portrait of Louis Braille and his name embossed on the stamp in braille alphabet.
Two definitive stamps from the series Birds complete the cover: issued on April 6, 2009 the value 27 cents depicts the bécasse des bois (Scolopax rusticola), a woodcock found in temperate woodland of Eurasia. The 23 cents value issued on March 26, 2007 features the choucas des tours (Corvus monedula), a black-plumage jackdaw.
