Ooooooo, just had a thought . . . is it a series of stamps celebrating the Cruel And Unusual Geography of the Discworld ?

However, the subject is closely connected to a character that runs through the Discworld whole genre.

I seem to recall a certain Professor of Cruel and Unusual Geography who has certain athletic tendencies . . .

Particularly loving the aurora above Cori Celesti - very nice touch indeed :thumbl: and the turbulent clouds and seas surrounding Leshp - very myffic :wink:
Have spotted the sport for Leshp (nunc id vides, nunc ne vides!) :wink: and The Wyrmberg, but the resolution on the sheet jpeg isn't good enough to see the detail of what the difference actually is - had to give up looking for the other sports, as was in danger of developing a permanent squint! :lol:
I'm sure there's a joke or two to be had from Fat Geysers . . .

Four stamps accompanied by four sports.
One of the individual stamps shown on the website is a sport.

Thank you all, as ever, for the kind words and orders, we'll do our very best to ship these ASAP.

I do, however, have a confession. There's a lovely lady who frequents this very forum who lives many many miles away, across the ocean. She normally has to wait 3 agonising weeks for her LBEs to reach her. It just so happens that this lovely lady found herself in our humble establishment in Wincanton a few days before the release. I hold my guilty hands up, imploring you fine folk to find forgiveness... for I have sinned.

For all the times she's patiently waited whilst you gleefully liberated your stampish hauls...

For the whistfull look on her eager chops...

For the fact that we had to chase her off the stamp bin that morning...

We let This lovely lady pick up her Cruel and Unusal Geography LBEs in person, a couple of days earlier then the rest of you.
In my defence, dear forumeers, if you'd have seen the look on her face... It would have melted your hearts too.

Forgive me, dear friends, I'm off to sit on the naughty step.
