My stamp order from Portugal

When Portuguese post issued Star Wars stamps, I decided it's time to make my first order from this beautiful country. This beautiful sheet with 3 stamps and 6 individual stamps are dedicated to The 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, and it's issued on 25.8.2017. Sheet is dedicated to the original trilogy (now Episodes IV, V and VI), and individual stamps celebrate most memorable characters from franchise.

Beautiful design and coloring for legendary characters: Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Yoda. 

I also bought Europa (C.E.P.T.) - Children's Books, issued on 7.5.2010. Fantastic design!

Portugal also have separate issues for their island territories, Madeira and Azores, and it's also issued on 7.5.2010.

This is Europa (C.E.P.T.) - Astronomy, issues for Portugal, Azores and Madeira. Release date was 8.5.2009.

I also bought this 3 joint issues:
Joint issue with Iraq - Birds of Prey, 21.9.2009.
Joint issue with Turkey - Porcelain, 12.5.2009.
Joint issue with India - Folklore/Dance, 7.1.2017.

And for the end, this is one of rare posts which sends philatelic material in cover with stamps! This is so rare today, unfortunately. They used two different stamps: Christmas, (10.9.2013), and famous Portuguese tiles rewarded with Aga Khan Award for Architecture (6.9.2013.)
