December 1st we got to spend the day with Hereford college of Art.
They are currently doing a project on the beauty of the postage stamp. The project consists of collecting a years worth of illustrated envelopes from as many different people as possible. So of course we were happy to join in.

The Penny Black was the world’s first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system. It was issued in Britain on 1 May 1840, for official use from 6 May of that year and features a profile of the Queen Victoria.
