Alice in Wonderland

I had been eagerly looking forward to this years stamp releases. I was beyond excited when I learnt that the years first release was Alice in Wonderland. There's no way you couldn't like Alice in Wonderland, it's such a classic.

I marked it up in my diary and headed to the post office on the morning of it's release. They are so much more beautiful in person. I bought a First Day Cover which needed to be posted to me so that it could get the official post mark, but I couldn't leave the post office without some of them in my hand so I bought a few extras too.

Aren't they beautiful. The stamps were designed by Grahame Baker-Smith, who illustrated them for the 150th anniversary of the book.

 The post mark is a wonderful thing to behold!

Here are the explanations of all the stamps. This information card comes with the First Day Cover.

I sent a letter to my friend Josie, who loves Alice in Wonderland more than anyone I know. If you head over to her blog, you can see what I sent her.


  1. I saw these today - I love Alice In Wonderland so much! Next time I'm in the PO I'm grabbing those babies!

    1. I just wanna buy loads and loads because they're so nice! I wish they were available all the time!
