Zlobenia and Borogravia

The stamps and postal history of Zlobenia and Borogravia are the subject of the latest topic in The Discworld Stamp Collector.
It has revealed that the Bad Blintz overprint booklets exist in two forms - or three if you count overprint colour. These will be added to the Discworld Stamp Catalogue shortly.

Great work Steve!
Well up to your usual high standard!

There has been much discussion on this Bad Blintz overprint booklet. The original intention was for the rectangular overprint to be placed directly on each individual stamp, as you would expect, and this is how it was shown on the website. Such booklets do exist. At some point the notion of an overprint got lost and confused and hence the overprint and circular postmark versions stamped down the middle. There is one further variant, which I have, and that is no overprint whatsoever but the booklet cover does still depict the gold Zlobenian eagle.

Thanks for additional info Danjim.
So there are at least 2 'sport booklets'.

I have seen that the 'type 1' overprint (that was the original catalogue entry) came not only in red and black, but also in blue.

Has anybody got a scan of the overprint done neatly - once per stamp rather than across 3 or 4 stamps - that they can put up here?
