'Centenary of the Titanic'1912 ~ 2012
It was an absolute pleasure to be commissioned to design this issue commemorating the Centenary of the Titanic. It is such an iconic ship that we have all heard of. The stamps tell the story of the ship’s fateful journey; from embarking upon her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, to the night of 15th April 1912 when Titanic sank into the sea. Lots of research here again to get all the details correct – I wanted to have the correct flags flying or not flying at all, at each stage of the voyage, the correct phase of the moon as the ship sailed past Alderney and all of the musicians, with their correct instruments, who carried on playing as the ship sank. I hope that I did it all justice.
