On September 1st, POST CH (Swiss Post) is releasing a set of four stamp designs illustrated by John Howe. They are available on a single illustrated sheets of four stamps for each of the four designs, or a set of four postcards (one per design). For the stamp sheets, they can be ordered uncanceled, or canceled on the day of release. They can be pre-ordered now, and are available to ship to most of the world.

John says "I would suggest getting pre-orders in early if you are tempted, they will not last long." ... 0R.%20Tolkien%201892-1973

Just in case anyone has ordered these and are waiting (patiently or impatiently) - mine just hit customs in Sweden.

Decided on the stamps alone, glad I bought these. They are really quite sweet little trinkets.

Would be nice to have those huge mock-ups they were using, ideally signed by Mr Howe 🙂
