Fourth Lietuvos Vaikas issue - Air post 1933

And of course, the last Lietuvos Vaikas issue comes with the air post stamps too! Maironis, Juozas Tumas-Vaižgantas, Vincas Kudirka and Julija Žemaitė, all 4 people depicted on the stamps are poets and writers. I personally like the last 2 Žemaitė stamps the best. The name "Žemaitė" reminds me of Zemaitis Guitars, a British guitar-manufacturing company based in Tokyo, Japan founded by a Lithuanian named Antanas (Tony) Kazimeras Žemaitis who was a legendary luthier (someone who makes lutes of string instruments).
