How thrilling to see so much background information, truly a goldmine for a serious King collector!

What became, I wonder, of the Peter Blake painting referred to above?

Thank you for posting these materials JepserDK.

Here is the Peter Blake painting on the 150th anniversary cover.  A limited edition of 500.

I've discussed this with Gerry to try to get some better clarity.  But, as he says, it was 50 years ago and, as it was only a bit of fun, he wasn't keeping records.  But he can remember names!  So.

1st printing (1965, black on coloured papers) exists in at least two states.  Imperforate and P11.  Some of the printed sheets from Red Lodge Press, were "sent to Harry Rooke (Cinderella journalist for magazine "Stamp Collecting Weekly") who in turn sent them to someone who had a perforating machine.  They came back with at least two thirds badly perfed right into the design.  I never used this guy again as I by this time had been contacted by Dave Stirling who had his own machine and was much better at it; he did all my stuff after that."  My own collection has perf and imperf.  Some of the perforations are very scruffily done but I've no way, yet, of being able to point to the two different perforators.

2nd Printing (late 1970, black on 10 different coloured papers).  Added the 7 1/2 wink too late, the Weeping mock turtle and the 4 winks postage due.  The one and three wink Alice heads were printed in blocks of 4.  The sheets were box-rouletted 13 1/2 (but I don't know who by, the printers maybe as this issue seems to be always perforated.

3rd printing.  (mid 70s - a date anyone?) Coloured designs on coloured paper.  6 colours of stamps on 4 colours of paper - so 24 variants of each stamp for completists to look for!

Should we move this discussion to a new thread?  It doesn't seem to have much to do with reference materials any more!

Since it is Gerald KingĀ“s birthday today (81 years young) I thought I would post a very interesting letter I have in my collection. 

The letter is 52 years old (1964) and written by Gerald to Ken Lake (Ken Lake was one half of Lake and Brooks who produced the 'Year of the Child covers'. Apparently Ken died about 4 years ago).

The letter clearly shows Gerry's wit and humor.

I have stamps inscribed 'Revenue Society of Great Britain that are very similar in design to these. Anyone seen them before ?

Glad of some help, thanks.
