No one seems to know the true origins of Valentine’s Day, the day upon which we celebrate love all around the world.
Two beautifully scenic stamps have been lovingly produced by Guernsey Post to celebrate Valentine’s Day and will be released at Stampex 2018, the big British Stamp Show.
Organised by the Philatelic Traders Society (PTS), the show is the UK’s largest philatelic show, held every Spring and Autumn at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.
The 2018 Spring Stampex runs from 14 to 17th February and will see many dealers who are members of the PTS taking stands, exhibiting and selling their stamps.
Guernsey Post’s contribution, released on Valentine’s Day features ‘The View from the Lover’s Chair’, the work of Paul Jacob Naftel who was the Island’s most famous and successful artist during the 19th century.
