Updated June 27. On Monday, July 1, the collection of floral stamps Sir Paul designed for the Isle of Man Post are due to be released (see February 17). The stamp bureau has printed 170,000 copies of the McCartney edition which is entitled Happy Memories of the Isle of Man. It is anticipated that the stamps will be prized by collectors all over the world. A set of the stamps were presented to Sir Paul at the opening of his art exhibit at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery last month.
A portion of the proceeds from the issue of the stamps will be donated to the Adopt-A-Minefield campaign. Sir Paul says, "I'm very pleased that the Adopt A Minefield campaign will benefit from this issue which I was honored to create from happy memories of an old stamping ground."
The stamps may be purchased online from the Isle of Man Post.
