Hi Glen,

Fantastic colours to work with, on this series I am using Adobe software, let the software manage the colours not the scanner. This is the software we used in our supermarket's weekly handbills.

Cheers

Thanks Kevin,

They are easy on the eye and tend to relax the mind. The designs of these stamps make them so enjoyable.

Hi, these are fantastic but the originals are missing, the 1931-2 sets. I hope you can show us these also.

Presumably you mean the Bird of Paradise stamps from New Guinea.

Another time another thread, perhaps.

Hi waroff49,

I will post the Dated and Undated birds from New Guinea at the end of this thread dedicated to you and the GOMC, which by the way I enjoy greatly.

Barry,

fantastic scans of beautiful stamps. I hope you don't mind me stating this though, since it is the scientist in me, it is world-wide convention to italicize or underline the Latin name of a species.

I stopped more than 30 years ago collecting new TPNG stamps. I think it is high time to re-consider that decision! Thank you!
