Both famous women to whom Croatian Post and Telecommunications dedicates these commemorative stamps on the occasion of the 1996 European Post and Telecommunications Conference, belong to the world of literature. Cvijeta Zuzorić was born in mid-16th century in Dubrovnik. Extremely well educated, she married a rich merchant from Florence. She moved in the highest cultural circles of this capital of culture and knowledge. In 1570 her husband was appointed a consul in Dubrovnik, and Cvijeta returned to her native town. Both in Florence and in Dubrovnik she left many traces in poetry. It is said that she wrote sonnets herself, which was not unusual in Dubrovnik where women were educated and appreciated. She was a link between the two Adriatic coasts and the two cultures - Croatian and Italian. Ivana Brlić - Mažuranić ranks among the top Croatian writers. She was born to one of the most outstanding political and cultural families of Croatia. Her grandfather was the famous ban (viceroy) and poet Ivan Mažuranić. Her books were written for children, primarily for her own children; the most famous are "Tales of Times Bygone" and the novel "The wonderful Adventures of Apprentice Hlapić", and her "Fairy Tailes and Fables" are equally good. However, they reach far beyond childhood, aiming deeply at the mature side of man's nature. Her questions are extreme, and the very meaning of existence is constantly put to trial in her works. She was the first woman in Croatia to be elected member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences. Her books have been translated into nearly all European languages. She was a candidate for the Nobel Prize.
