Almost forgot - thanks for the reminder. :)

Love the front cover piece - is it really embossed, or just great artwork? Really looks 3D!

The cover image is a hi- res image though it does look like actual embossing.
Some of the Tasmanian stationery must be among the most attractive items in philately 🙂

Thanks to all those who ordered and have paid for Tasmanian Postal Stationery at the pre-publication offer price.

Your support will enable us to pay the Printer's deposit which is quite substantial!

We hope to commence posting copies when we receive the book back from the Printer, early November.

In the meantime we can take orders at the standard price of $150 + postage and packing - see https://tasstampbooks.com/tasmanian-postal-stationery/

You will also find sample pages and much other information on the website as well.

Here's an up-date for those who have pre-ordered "Tasmanian Postal Statioinery".

The book is just off the press in Melbourne and will be shipped to Hobart on Monday.
Once signed and numbered, we will post all orders and expect this to happen well before Christmas.

A report from one of the Authors in Melbourne, Allen Shatten, says the printer has done an excellent job and it is top quality throughout.

We'll email you when the book is in the mail.

For anyone who missed out, we have printed some extra copies at the normal retail of $150 + P&P.
