I do like this series of Alfred, Lord Tennyson stamps with his world weary look, his melancholy deeply etched on his face
Designed by Irene von Treskow showing portraits of Tennyson with characters from his poems. The 24p portrait from around 1888 with an illustration of Vivien from his poem Vivien and Merlin painted by Sir Edward Burne Jones. The 28p portrait shows him in 1856 with an Arthur Hughes illustration, April Love, which included some lines from The Miller's Daughter when it was first exhibited.
A full, and slightly unruly, beard for Sunday Stamps
