  • Isle of Man – Manx Winter by Julia Ashby SmythIsle of Man – Manx Winter by Julia Ashby SmythNovember 13, 2022Isle of Man Post Office is delighted our 2022 Christmas stamp issue depicting Manx winter scenes illustrated by local artist Julia Ashby-Smyth. This issue represents the final Isle of Man stamps to receive the royal approval of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and is therefore the last use of her effigy upon a Manx stamp.  The Isle of Man Post Office’s relationship with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II began when the Island gained postal independence on 5th July 1973, since then each stamp released has received the royal approval of Her Majesty, displaying her royal cypher or effigy. This collection is the final issue to be approved and to feature the cypher or effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.  This collection of Manx winter scenes has been beautifully illustrated by local artist Julia Ashby-Smyth, a freelance illustrator whose much-loved works can be sighted across our Island, particularly throughout book illustrations and local branding.  Julia states “I love detail, much of my work being quite intricate, telling stories layer upon layer, throughout an image; my avid interest in the Manx landscape, its folklore, mythology and symbolism often permeating through to paper.” Isle of Man Stamps and Coins General Manager, Maxine Cannon said: “For me and a great number of colleagues, both past and present, there could have been few jobs where every day of our working life we were mindful of our deep and long lasting association with Queen Elizabeth II. This set of stamps by talented local artist Julia Ashby-Smyth represents the final collection of stamps to receive Her Majesty’s approval, making them a piece of our Island’s postal history. Julia’s seasonal artworks are a beautiful depiction of our Island throughout the winter months and make for the perfect festive issue.” Artist Julia Ashby-Smyth said “I am delighted and honoured that these watercolours have been chosen for the new ‘winter’ issue. Inspired by captured moments, most often whilst out walking, bundled up in layers of wool, the cold air nipping at my nose, these scenes bring back many happy memories. The Agneash image, for instance, was painted after a very happy day sledging down snowy slopes. I walked home through an entirely golden pink landscape, even the seagulls were pink. Winter light is exquisite, creating spectacular colours, deeply hued shadows and extraordinarily beautiful skies.” Issued on 2nd November 2022, the collection is available as a Stamp Set, Self-Adhesive Set, Sheet Set, Self-Adhesive Sheet Set, Presentation Pack, First Day Cover, Self-Adhesive First Day Cover and a limited edition special cover in honour of the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  Technical Details Text: Julia Ashby-Smyth Design: Isle of Man Advertising & PR Sheet Size: 155mm x 155mm Format: Sheets of 20 Process: Offset lithography Colours: 4 Paper: 413 True White Litho FSC 110 Perforations: 11.5 per 2cm Stamp Size: 31mm x 25.96mm Printer: bpost Date of Issue: 2nd November 2022 Limited Editions: Presentation Pack 1100; First Day Cover 1500 [...]
  • Isle of Man – Underwater PhotographyIsle of Man – Underwater PhotographyNovember 13, 2022Isle of Man Post Office is delighted to release this issue of six stamps sharing a collection of underwater photographs depicting various species native in and around the waters of the Isle of Man. Produced alongside local marine biologist Dr Lara Howe, this set aims to raise awareness, educate and promote the marine habitats that surround the shores of our Isle.  The Isle of Man is a special place for wildlife, both above and below water; with over 87% of its territory being marine. Under the waves, beyond the view of many, the topography, strong tidal currents and clean waters has created a myriad of marine habitats and species, many of which are as bright and colourful as their tropical counterparts. The majority of our 160km coastline is rocky reef creating a beautiful underwater habitat. Much research has been undertaken in Manx waters over the centuries by marine scientists including the famous Manxman Edward Forbes. Not forgetting the many scientists and students from around the world who studied at the Marine Biological Station in Port Erin, where much exploration and investigation has been undertaken over the lifetime of the lab. This work has highlighted the diversity that these marine waters have to offer and the huge amount of life that they support, from the little to the large. From plankton, to anemones, snails, crabs, fish and our larger marine life such as basking sharks, cetaceans and seals. Isle of Man Stamps and Coins General Manager, Maxine Cannon said: “Isle of Man Stamps and Coins is thrilled to share this insightful collection of stamps exploring life beneath the waves of our Island. Having worked alongside Dr Lara Howe, we have selected a varied range of species native to the Island, with all images having been captured in Manx waters. The work carried out by Lara and her team highlights the diversity that our waters have to offer and the huge amount of life that they support.” Dr Lara Howe said “I’m delighted and honoured to have been asked to produce this collection of stamps and share my lifelong passion for marine wildlife. The photographs showcase the wonderful, rich and varied marine life in Manx waters.” The collection is available as a Stamp Set, Sheet Set, Presentation Pack, First Day Cover, Prestige Booklet and Booklet Pane.
