Stamps produced over 25 years ago were so much harder to get printed and perforated.  No disrespect intended to the modern desk-top publishing era of stamp producers but in that time it was no small task to organise a small print run of stampsheets in colour, just for your own entertainment, a hoax, or simply your 'art'.

Funny how the same themes crop up over the years but among different stamp-makers..... penguins, roses, egypt, rockets, airships, hearts, trains and bikes!



... and lighthouses and sprawling naked women...

Bruce has responsible for a number of different bogus territories, all with a history, and all interlinked. These include Kemp Land, Mevu and Port Maria - too many to list here. But I hope to add to the collection and post finds here with explanations. But those interested should read Geir's articles.

However I was surprised to discover, after the first article, that I already had some of Bruce's stamps in my colllection. These date back to 1968 and I obtained them while they were in production. They were a true hoax isue, claiming to be a Bicycle Post run by schoolkids in a New Zealand town. Below is the full set of Timaru Cycle Post stamps.



I recently saw just three of these for sale at £50! I hope adding to a collection of Bruce's material will be a fraction of these prices.

I was very pleased to get a nice batch of stamps and covers of Occussi-Ambeno (see below) as a bargain batch. These were produced by a guy called Bruce Henderson, who is responsible for a wide range of fictitious places for over 25 years. There is an ongoing series of articles in the Cinderella Philatelist currently by Geir Sǿr-Reime, a Norwegian who I had the pleasure to meet the other day.
