🇫🇰 The Falkland Islands postal service will issue a new definitive set on the subject of local Small Birds on 14 August 2017. The excellent set was designed by Andrew Robinson and lithographed by Cartor and perforated 13 x 13.5. Rating:- *****.
Thanks to Juliet Warner of Pobjoy Stamps for the information.
🇬🇧 Royal Mail has revealed the winning entries in a children's competition to design stamps for Christmas 2017. The "Santa" design is by Ted Lewis-Clark, aged 10, from Frome in Somerset and the "Snow Family" is by Arsenal Wilson, aged 9, from Dudley in the West Midlands. The judge who chose the winning designs was none other than The Prince Of Wales. The stamps will be issued on 7 November 2017. I don't usually like stamps based on children's art but I think these are rather good. Rating:- ****.
