Guernsey Post unveils Bailiwick stamps depicting the Christmas Story
Guernsey Post’s philatelic bureau announces that it will issue Bailiwick Christmas stamps depicting scenes from the centuries old story of Jesus’s birth, which is described in the biblical gospels of Matthew and Luke (stamp issue date: 3 November 2023).
The Guernsey stamps have been created by talented artist and book illustrator, Alexandra Ball, whose particular style brings a contemporary feel to the Nativity story.
For the Alderney set, Guernsey’s philatelic bureau commissioned Martin Hargreaves whose passion for Renaissance artwork is evident across the stamps.
Bridget Yabsley, Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, said: - “We are delighted with this year’s Christmas stamps, which feature two distinct illustrative styles that bring to life the centuries old story of Jesus’s birth and feature some of the important scenes from the Nativity.”
The Christmas stamps will be available to pre-order from 20 October at www.guernseystamps.com or by calling Philatelic Customer Services on +44 (0) 1481 716486.
