Thanks to everyone who has posted here, it makes all the hard work worthwhile!

SPOILERS
I forgot to scan this in last time but here is the research paper I received in my Isle of Vue package. Was there just the one example this year? Or do others have different versions?

I have the same. I believe its all on the two pages.

Which stamps did you get in and on the card? And on the Royal Mail envelope?

My Stampex card off Colin arrived today. Only 11 days by 1st Class Royal Mail! However, worth the wait as it is themed very nicely with this issue. Love the visual pun Colin; nice one.

Has anybody else noticed the tribute to Quilpusha, formerly an active member of the Forum and still missed?

Having failed to attend the annual gathering this year, I wonder whether I am still in line for a Stampex special this year? I will certainly be watching the post with interest over the next couple of days! That's if the London posties are willing to brave our treacherous icy pavements, of course.

I mentioned the reference to Peter Yorke (Quilpusha) that is on the back of one of the Swedko cards in my post earlier in this thread. Have you spotted another?

By the by, in answer to your earlier question about extra items and stamps on my Royal Mail envelope, the details are as follows:

SPOILERS

The tete-beche pair on my Valentine's card comprises a Floral Gardens variant (left-hand, upside-down) and a Poetry Corner standard (right-hand, right-way-up).

My early bird stamp is a pink Poetry Gardens different variant with what looks like two birds in the sky above the couple which I took (in the spirit of other variants) to be the lovebirds from the 2012 Isle of Vue issue.

My forum extra is a purple The Love Swing tete-beche variant pair, both stamps are JN inscription variants.

My colour test sheet looks like the one pictured on the ebay listing although the colours in Colin's pictures actually seem more vibrant than those on the sheet itself.

The stamps on my Royal Mail envelope seem pretty close in colour to the issued stamps but perhaps a slight shade paler. They are a vertical pair, which appear to be a The Love Swing standard above a Poetry Gardens variant.

No worries. I didn't do much of a job of highlighting it. Just mentioned it in between the images. Shame though. I was hoping you had found another reference to the late great Pusha-da-Quil.
