STAMPS: ALDERNEY/GUERNSEY ISSUES GREAT PACKAGE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES STAMPS
Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Arthur Conan Doyle, Guernsey Post has issued a very nice little package of stamps, stamp sheets, first day cover, stamp sets and a 'Mystery Pack'. Guernsey Post has also set up a great site for international orders at http://www.sherlockstamps.com/
"To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of this highly influential writer, our unique collection of stamps tells the story of "Sherlock Holmes and the Curious Case of the Alderney Bull", which is a new mystery set in Alderney. Whilst the stamps provide an insight into this intriguing story, it can be followed in full - and you may even solve the mystery yourself - in our special mystery pack, which includes a stamp souvenir sheet containing a hidden image complete with lens."
