🇬🇧 Images of Royal Mail’s Christmas stamps for 2019 may now be seen on the internet. The designs are pleasing and this year take a religious theme telling the Christmas story straightforwardly and respectfully. I like these stamps and it is good that the Royal Mail this year intends to remind collectors and general mail senders alike just what Christmas is really about. The set will be released on 5 November 2019 (which given that that is Bonfire night doesn’t seem wholly appropriate). Doubtless the basic stamps will be accompanied by a gummed miniature sheet, booklets of self-adhesive stamps and a ‘Generic sheet’. Rating:- ****.
