Australia 2016 - Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet part 2




COUNTRY: AUSTRALIA
ISSUE DATE: 16 August 2016
STAMP SIZE:26 x 37.5 mm
PRODUCT DESIGN: Sonia Young

Let’s have a Captain Cook at the second instalment of the true-blue Aussie alphabet! This time it’s Tassie’s turn, with Tarquin the tradie teaching two-up in his tinny to Teena the terrified Tasmanian Devil. Tragically, when the coins were tossed, terrified Teena toppled into the treacherous Tasman in a tailspin. Traumatised, the tearful tradie then travelled to the Tarkine to join the battle to save the Tasmanian Devil from the same terrible, terminal fate as the Thylacine.

FIRST DAY COVERS
 

Meanwhile, Louisa the lazy Lace Monitor lobs a lamington to Lionel the Lyrebird for lunch and rapacious Rebecca regards her rusty refrigerator replete with relics robbed from her rich relatives.

GUTTER STRIPS

In Canberra, Cheryl and Claude, a customarily cautious couple, courageously cajole a chummy crocodile and crazy cockatoo into camping and cooking, while Aaron the angry Aussie Rules aficionado is anxious that acclaimed Adelaide achieves its ambition.
