This pair of domestic rate stamps celebrates the centenary of first publication of Anne of Green Gables, which was authored by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Designed by Trampoline's Oliver Hill and Dennis Page, the stamps feature paintings by Ben Stahl and Chris Kovacs. The use of warm hues of reds in Anne's hair and the sandbars in the background, as well as the blues in the water and sky were carefully chosen to capture Anne's vibrant nature and Prince Edward Island's unique land and sea scape. Moreover, screens of a delicate parlour wallpaper print accent the background pieces of the Official First Day Cover and the Souvenir Sheet.
