🇮🇲 Isle Of Man Post Office -
12 September 2022 - 75th birth anniversary of the late David Bowie - 8 stamps (cost - £9.80), 1 sheetlet of the 9 different stamps sold perforate for £9.80 and imperforate in a ‘limited edition’ of 1000 for £17.50 and 1 booklet containing 4 panes (each of 4 different stamps,) sold for £19.60p or a set of 2 different panes sold for £9.80. There is also a sheetlet of 9 x £1.04 ‘Labyrinth’ stamps sold for £9.36. The Labyrinth stamp is additionally inscribed EUROPA as IOM Post Office’s contribution to the 2022 EUROPA omnibus series which is themed ‘Folklore and stories’. The issue, designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, notes the deceased popular music singer’s career as an actor and the designs depict him in various roles. As far as I can see there is very little to link Bowie with the IOM except that the movie Everybody Loves Sunshine (1999) was produced and filmed on the island. Rating:- 0.
