Ordered! :D

I particularly love the Two Rhinu for the artistic reference to Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa . . . and the depiction of the singular personage of Cohen the Barbarian, of course, in all his loin'-clothed glory. I wonder if the characters in the cartouche mean something rude on Roundworld . . . or on Discworld for that matter, given the Silver Hoard's colourful vernacular :twisted:

The two kanji symbols [ 交 付 ] on the in the R2 cartouche are upside down but translate as delivery or service.

The 2 Rhinu is brilliant! I shall order extra LBEs for my birthday, my precious. And perhaps a sheet. :sunny: :D

I was so excited when I opened my LBE's this morning... I got two 2 Rhinu stamps in one of them! "Wow, the sport", I happily exclaimed....
Some twenty minutes later I paused in my minute examination of the two stamps... "Buggered if I can spot this one", I thought, and went back to my PC to see if anyone else had worked it out...
Doh! "There is no sport for this stamp" I finally notice. :oops:
At least I now have a full appreciation of it's beautiful depth of detail and stylish presentation... The One Squid is also a lovely piece of work... :thumbl:
I can only conclude that I'm paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate.
