Good Picture of Nanny Ogg and Rincewind
Coming in march and on order from the royal mail. Jason had this in the last issue of Discworld monthly but in case anyone missed it these could be a great collectors item :D :D

What! No Harry Potter!
They could have done a series of HP, then Discworld & the others after. 8)

I like them though.
Best wishes,

Very True.
The current special release set is Winnie the Pooh so if they ca do that by itself why not Discworld and the others here. but they do make a nice set.
Not sure what paper work etc comes with them but sometimes these booklets can be really good.

Interesting that apart from Discworld the others are all a good and an evil pair

Discworld doesn't have a continual evil character. They have a short life expectancy :D

If anyone would be willing to buy a couple sets for me (can stamps be ordered from outside the UK?) I will gladly compensate them either with cash or with the equivalent number of soon to be issued Ronald Reagan stamps (ducking!)

A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

If anyone outside the UK wants to get these then they will be available from the Royal Mail website closer to the time of issue.
