I like the nicknames for the Morpokia sports too.
I have a question about the ToA sport - usually any figures on the sports very much look like they're falling down off the top, but the Phantom on the new ToA looks like it might be someone levitating up . . . but they are wearing trousers rather than wizard's robes, which prompts the question of who it might be . . .?
I had a look at the other falling men and they didn't appear to have robes.

yes, but they were all falling off so gravity takes care of that, but the Phantom seems to be levitating up . . . which needs magic, which makes me wonder who, apart from wizards, would be able to do that?

Happy that my copy turned out to be the sport. Could this be the first time I have had a sport and been on the lookout for a common?

I have updated the catalogue and added some new sets to the Definitive section.
Unseen University, Thieves' Guild, Assassins' Guild, Merchants' Guild, Seamstress' Guild, and Clacks.

I have added the Watch House colour change stamp.
I have also added three new sports to the Sto Helit 5p Green. They all appear on the sheet.

I am looking at the $1 Sir Samuel Vimes stamp as there appears to be a change on hues; a darker blue.

I am just in the process of resorting all my stamps and working through year by year using your stamp catalogue (Thank you very much).

I've been working on The Year of the Three Roses tonight and have found an oddity.
In the PDF version of the catalogue, SHS AM0123 has two pages, both entitled Penny Patrician Black. The second of these pages however, has descriptions for the definitives for the year, but the images are actually Penny Patrician's of varying sizes.

Should these actually have been spread between pages AMO124, AMO125 and AMO126?

You are quite right. I use a code to tell the program how to lay out the page and have got the code wrong. It will be fixed forthwith.

Edited: Now corrected.

I wondered which stamps these referred to, but found that putting the shs numbers into search box yielded no results.

So I gave up!

Oops. The default is available. Now fixed.

I have now added a new section on Proof Sheets.
I am looking for scans of a couple of the rarer sheets - Thieves’ Guild Sport Artwork and Bonk Artist’s Proof.

I have now updated the section which previously only covered Definitives.
In addition, to the charts for each AMPO definitive, there are charts on the more frequently issued Guilds and the UU.
I have also added a poster showing all the stamps issued for each year.

Oook!

The pages look lovely! It's great seeing the stamps grouped together by theme like that, seeing how the designs and graphics change over time :sunny:

The Hogswatch page is missing a few stamps: 2013's $1 Hogfather, 3 of the Fairytale of Ankh-Morpork stamps & 2 of the 2015 Dragons. And maybe the other 3 of the 2007 Toy Store.
I'm sorry, it's the frustrated QA in me, I can't help it!


Keep up the great work! :thumbl:
What ape? Oook! :book:

I initially decided to just include the prime stamp from each set but I may change this to include sports and variations for each set.

Personally I don't know what I would do without the stamp album webpage...I'd be a confused mess
