Jersey Post: Two stamp issues, two eye-catching subjects

On 8 May 2012, Jersey Post issued two sets of stamps, one featuring some of the butterflies and moths fluttering around Jersey whilst the other shows four iconic island landmarks.

During the early preparation of the 'Butterflies and Moths III' stamp issue, Roger Long, a local lepidopterist, provided the philatelic research team with a list of suitable butterflies and moths for the set of six stamps.

This is the third issue in the 'Butterflies and Moths' series, all of which have been painted by wildlife artist William Oliver. A Souvenir Miniature Sheet which contains three of the stamps accompanies the issue.

In addition, four iconic scenes are depicted on a new set of self-adhesive stamps entitled 'Simply Jersey'.

Both the Jersey and UK booklets and sheets feature different images of well-known Jersey landmarks that can be found inland as well as around Jersey's coastline and their stories span hundreds of years.
