The two stamps from the series The Croatian Fairy World concern the fairytale literature of Vladimir Nazor. The dwarf named Longbeard Mannikin (Lakat brade-Pedalj muža) has a beaked nose, big eyes, short legs and a long beard, holding a pitchfork lance in his hand; he has been taken from the story Pionir Grujo (Grujo the pioneer). The fairy Halugica, the daughter of a sea fairy and an earth-bound fisherman, with long blonde hair cascading like a wave down her back, and with coral-red lips and big green eyes that glitter gently like two stars sunk in the depth and with a magic embroidered kerchief wrapped round her neck has been taken from the story Halugica.
