Roger Dean – Isle Of Man Exhibition Photo Cards

Words and photos by Tim Darbyshire.

In addition to the excellent stamp sets produced by the Isle Of Man Post Office for the current Roger Dean exhibition ‘Islands And Bridges’, a set of art cards – featuring all 26 paintings included in the exhibit – has been produced.

Ideal for framing, each full colour card measures 8 x 6 inches and is printed on quality paper stock. On the reverse of each card is a description written by Roger, detailing the background and inspiration for the painting.

The 26 images are a nice mixture of the familiar and the less so. There’s 10 or so images from YES albums, and the recent ‘Premonitions’ image used for Steve Hackett’s box set in 2015.

The outer wallet contains a brief biography and career outline, and the whole set makes a nice companion to the ‘Islands And Bridges’ First Day Cover and Presentation Stamp Pack. All these products – apart from the sold out signed version of the First Day Cover – are available direct from the Isle Of Man Post Office website.

For GBP 22.50 including worldwide shipping, the set is pretty good value and a welcome addition to any collection.
