#307 Egypt...Thanks Nagwa!

The 150pt stamp on the upper left corner was issued in 2009 honoring Naguib Mahfouz.

Naguib Mahfouz (Arabic: نجيب محفوظ‎, ) (1911–2006) was an Egyptian novelist who won the 1988 Nobel Prize for Literature. He is regarded as one of the first contemporary writers of Arabic literature, along with Tawfiq el-Hakim, to explore themes of existentialism. He published over 50 novels, over 350 short stories, dozens of movie scripts and five plays over a 70-year career. Many of his works have been made into Arabic and foreign-language films.
