The sequence had better repeat, or there'll be some very long words used... :D

OK, I currently have a stinking head cold and am all dosed up on Day & Night Nurse, so cognitive processes are currently running at Detritus-on-a-hot-day level, but I am now feeling like a complete thickie, as I'm just not getting this! :evil:

What blindingly obvious reference am I obviously blind to?

Will these feature the free farseeing accented osculating occult artistic firefly?

Wotcha! The next LBE will be with us soon, we had hoped to have it out earlier but packing Atlas pre-orders wiped us out a bit. I am very pleased to announce that:

Ok... that one was just gibberish. I am really pleased to say that we've managed to track down a former Discworld Stamp artist to complete our new set of highly illustrative stamps; the wonderful David Wyatt!

In Discworld terms David's work has graced the cover of The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents, Discworld calendars, beer labels and or course stamps.

His illustrations featured on the hugely popular Bad Blintz range from the Year of the Signifying Frog as well as the Susan Sto Helit stamps and at long last we've let him loose at Unseen University!

Magic!
