In what's becoming a bit of a seasonal tradition, Sarah Maycock was once again asked to help usher in Christmas at William & Son with her beautiful brushstrokes. This year's brief saw Sarah telling the story of a little dog called Humbug, who saves Christmas by visiting the store and lending Santa a helping paw.
The Christmas stamps are reminiscent of decades gone by and have just been issued by Jersey Post. Set in the 1950s and 1960s, the artworks depict a traditional festive activity including bringing home the Christmas tree, making the Christmas cake and carol singing; things that bring the family together.
Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post, reflects, “Of course, most of these traditions are still going strong today but Ruth Palmer’s interpretation reminds us of the time before computers and mobile phones, when families wore their Sunday best for Christmas dinner and festive patterned jumpers were worn in a non-ironic way!”
The stamps are available to buy here.
