It couldn't have happened to a more deserving author. Great news. It's a good job it wasn't the pratrician with that sword, there could have been a nasty accident!

It is a little bit more than the Laernu stamps, but I can certainly see why. There's a little bit in the description about that too.


Just wanted to ask if people thought they were worth the price for me it is going to be close to Aus$70 by the time the postage is added.

It depends on whether you collect 'Cinderella' stamps. If you are a collector and a collector of Colin and Alan's work, or you want this special edition to celebrate Terry's knighthood, then it may well be worth it. I know there seems to be a lot of interest on the Cunning Artificer's Stamp Forum. :)

Sorry, I tend to forget that people don't visit the same places as I do. :oops:

The Cunning Artificer forum is owned by Bernard Pearson (who was in the recent Alzheimer documentary) and it's the home of Discworld Stamps and lots of other lovely merchandise. :)

Definitely take into consideration what your budget is for these kinds of things. I try to set a limit and stick to it.

This one was a must have for me because I have all of the Discworld stamps that Colin Edwards and Alan Batley created (which is a huge majority of all the DW stamps created), along with most of their non-Discworld stamps.

One thing I can tell you is that their products are of the best quality! Their designs are incredibly detailed and well thought out. The illustrations are incredible. I have never, ever been disappointed. :D
