If you love The Little Prince by French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, here’s an exhibition you won’t want to miss. The Singapore Philatelic Museum is presenting The Little Prince: Behind the Story exhibition, which opens its doors to the public today.
First published in 1943, this beloved story continues to charm readers of all ages. It’s been translated into 300 languages since then and sold almost 200 million copies around the world — testament to its remarkable popularity.
The display will provide an inside look at how the author conceived the story. Over 250 exhibits have been flown in, including some rare artefacts that are, for the first time ever, being presented outside of France. They include Saint-Exupéry’s personal belongings, such as his notebook and coat, unpublished drawings and the pièce de résistance of the exhibition — an autographed copy of the first edition of the novella.
Before you head to the museum, here’s a little preview of what you can expect.
