Sark Marine Life on Guernsey Stamps
Underwater images of crustaceans from the sea around Sark by award-winning natural history photographer Sue Daly take the starring role in the latest set of stamps produced by Guernsey Post and are on sale from today. Various species of crabs and lobsters and a hermit crab feature on the standard collection while the rare Anemone Shrimp features on a special augmented reality £3 stamp.
When this stamp is scanned with a tablet or phone loaded with the relevant app a 3 minute high definition film also made by Sue about the magical world of crustaceans is revealed. The music for the film was composed and performed by Sark-based singer songwriter Peter Gabriel Byrne. The stamps are available from Sark Post Office, post offices in Guernsey and from the Guernsey Post web site at http://www.guernseystamps.com/new-issues/guernsey-new-issues/marine-life-ii-crustaceans/.
