Trade art stamps to be issued

Hongkong Post will launch a special stamp issue and associated philatelic products on the theme Hong Kong Museums Collection - 19th Century China Trade Paintings with the Museum of Art on May 25.   The department said this follows the success of its collaboration with the museum for the Hong Kong Museums Collection last year.   The special issue includes a set of six stamps and two stamp sheetlets which showcase people's lives and customs as well as the landscapes of Guangzhou and Hong Kong, where merchants converged in the 19th century, giving stamp lovers a glimpse of these scenes in miniature.   The associated philatelic products include a collector pack which has a set of six stamps, two stamp sheetlets of $10 and $20 each, a serviced first day cover and two serviced collector covers.   The two collector covers are not for sale separately, the department added.   Advance orders can be made through the ShopThruPost website.
