Norfolk Island's Personalised Stamps
Norfolk Island's first issue of personalised stamps. This set of four stamps designed by Norfolk Island school students Jessica Wong, Mardi Pye, Roxeanne Spreag, Tara Grube and Tom Greenwood commemorates the coming of the Real Millennium.
The stamps depict subjects relative to life on Norfolk Island... The 45c stamps show Philip Island (3 miles from Norfolk Island) before and after the eradication of the European rabbit. The map of Norfolk Island superimposed with birds features two endemic subspecies (which were near extinction), the Morepork and the Green Parrot, plus the indigenous Sooty Tern.
The 75c stamps show hibiscus, Norfolk Pine, the sun, a woven hat, kentia palm and a convict suit - all part of Norfolk.
Tom's artwork depicts a hilly Norfolk Island, car transport, sunny days and vibrant blue seas.
The gutters of the sheets of 60 stamps feature the photographs and signatures of these young artists - hence the term 'Personalised Stamps'.
