Sea Travel

Sea Travel Stamps are overprinted with First Class values and presented in a vertical strip. They come to you on a carrier featuring an illustration by Andy Tuohy, showing an ocean liner at anchor. This is again replete with fascinating facts from travel writer Simon Calder and also offers a brief look at Andy Tuohy’s illustrative methods and style.
