GRAHAMSTOWN - STAMPS (article first published : 1999-06-29)

A collection of special issue stamps will be on display at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival. To pay homage to the arts, a unique stamp series and commemorative cover has been designed to honour the 25th anniversary of the Festival.

With artwork by Chenette Swart, the stamps portray symbols representing the various artistic disciplines. Other subjects in the exhibition range from the quirky, sporty and fun to the serious and socially aware. Included is a tribute to Australia, called Australia '99, a joint issue with Australia entitledSailing the Southern Oceans, and a celebration of 125 years of the Universal Postal Union (all illustrated by Dennis Bagnall). An AIDS awareness series, an acknowledgement of the workers of South Africa, and a miniature sheet in recognition of 900 years of the Order of St John will also be showcased. And for something a bit more light-hearted artist Dennis Murphy designs a miniature sheet and commemorative cover for the Lunar Year of the Rabbit.

As the stamps will be available for purchase, this philatelic dream is something not to be missed by all stamp-collecting enthusiasts.
