I thought you collectors of Discworld stamps would be interested to see this unusual combination of proof sheets.

One 1 A3 (bigger than A3 I think) sheet containing sheets of the Pain of Pain, Rainbow Pain of Pain with tete beche, Blue Bernard with 3 labels and, finally, the Cabbage Fields sport.

Lots of printers markings around the edge.  All are imperforate.

Sorry it's a photo but I couldn't get it into my scanner!!

The first two sheets you mentioned were available from the green cabbage trading stamps scheme, the third sheet (cant make it out) b8ut maybe the cabbage sports sheet which was one of the Hogswatch LBE prizes a couple of years ago and is very rare as they were never available for purchase as a sheet

I know that some of the individual sheets are not rare but when they are all printed together on a single, very large, sheet of paper and are all imperforate I think that the rareness factor is stepped up several notches!

Too true Keith, Could not see that it was imperforate, and I know where you got that one Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

A lot of these sheets were among the bits of paper that got wrecked when the central heating boiler caught fire last December and the roof of my 'safe' room, along with the garage and the back of the house was ruined, not so much by the fire itself but by the dampening down, and then the snow and cold, which came afterwards. I had a lot of original artwork in there - and all the digital archives - from my 25+ years of designing and much of it was lost.

I do have a few copies left of this proof that were still in my studio though if anyone is interested,
I'd much rather they were in the hands of collectors,  and I also believe Alan might have a couple.

Which ones of the 3 mentioned have you got Colin?

The Vetinari pain of pain rainbow and common?
The Blue Bernard sheet with the stickers?
or the cabbage "lovers" sport sheet?

If its the latter I will be interested!

They are all on the one imperf sheet as shown on Keith's photo. If you want to cut them up that's fine  :-)

Doh!  should pay more attention or wear my reading glasses whilst browsing, eyesight must be going faster than I thought Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

Damn. That means I paid an arm and two legs for something that turns out to be common. Oh well, you live and learn.
