By Jingo, it's a new Peter Dennis stamp due to 'fly' off the shelves!

:D :bounce: :D OOOOooooooo are we getting a new stamp celebrating the genius of the "Going-Under-the-Water-Safely Device" ???

Possibly complete with Nobby Nobbs getting in touch with his feminine side? Well, let's face it, it's preferable to the thought of him attempting to get in touch with anyone else's feminine side . . . :wink:

Oook!

Does that mean we have to pay extra for a good clue, or that we're due some sort of payment for having to read this one?

And why do I suddenly have this vision of the Klatchian embassy burning, with Vimes saving a woman though one window, while 71-hour Achmed sneaks the prince out another one...?
What ape? Oook! :book:

I really like the 6p Prid of Ankh-Morpork. That ship and its sails are so nicely proportioned, I like the nautical theme throughout. Octopus and shells, ropes, pearls, waves to defeat and wind to assist. All fits together so well.

I agree with Muba. The use of colour has given a three-dimensional look to the stamp with the ship sailing out of the grey background.
