Don't matter if you get the stamps at the time or back fill, denial about cost is the only way.

Agreed! And I especially don't run any equations that factor in the cost of different book-cover editions, signed editions, special editions, DW themed artwork, socks, clothing, jewellery, general apparel, tea-towels, ornaments, etc., etc., etc.

We need some Cheesemonger socks to go along with the Cheesemonger LBEs... Sgt. Jackrum would approve. :wink:

With the Hogswatch period in full swing I thought it would be interesting to see how the Hogfather has been represented through the 14 years of Discworld stamps.

Rather consistent, considering the different artists involved

Anyone know a good (free) translate-to-Latin site?
Google Translate isn't worth the paper it's printed on :evil:

I agree - the Latin to English isn't too bad, but the English to Latin is shocking. I think the problem lies in Google allowing people to 'contribute . . .'

Ooooo fun to designing a coat of arms though!! :D :D

The problem is, I come up with a nice pune - but when I run it through the translator it becomes a banal sentence, which sometimes has nothing to do with the original text.

On a purely random note, what's Latin for stamp*?

You need to be creative with the definition of a stamp, such as Travelling Image or Cursus Publicus
