When Bernard, The Cunning Artificer, first created the DW stamps, he sent an envelope with just those on it to TP. It was delivered, no questions asked. :D Subsequently, Bernard tells, he was allowed to have a DW stamp table at a major stamp event. The Stanley Gibbons reps came over, studied the stamps in detail, were stunned by the sequentially falling man on the Tower of Art stamp and were overall mightily impressed with them. Go, Bernard! :D

Same with me Bouncy, but subconsciously maybe we are expecting it to be more Discworldly in content. :think: maybe a longer perusal in a larger bookshop with chairs will help. :whistle: :mrgreen:

If you have any left I would love a sampler. This is the most anticipated book for me this year :D
