Notes: These covers are hand made from the finest quality linen textured paper. Royal Mail’s Christmas stamps feature secular and religious imagery in alternate years. For the 2014 Christmas stamps, design company True North commissioned the US-based artist and illustrator Andrew Bannecker to create a series of outdoor Christmas scenes. These charming mini tableaux depict various British family traditions – from carol singing and ice skating to posting cards and buying trees. The stamps are
available as part of a miniature sheet, with a gorgeous border also illustrated by Andrew Bannecker.
