This chequebook contains 20 booklets of 10 x $1 self-adhesive 'Q' stamps from the Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet part one stamp issue.
Test your spelling with this first instalment of the fair dinkum Aussie alphabet! Have you ever seen a winsome wombat watering a waratah in Western Australia? Or Vince the vague Victorian vanquishing violins with his Victa while devouring his vegemite victuals? How about a quizzical quokka queuing for a Quokkair flight to Queensland, or nautical numbat navigating naughty nippers in New South Wales? This stamp issue is part one of a series featuring an old-fashioned Aussie alphabet of humorous scenes devised by artist Gavin Ryan. It begins with the letters representing five of our states.
N is for … New South Wales, nipper, numbat…
Q is for … Queensland, Quokka, queue, quoll…
S is for … South Australia, shark, sandcastle, surf, starfish, sausage…
V is for … Victoria, Victa, vegemite, vegetables, violin…
W is for … Western Australia, wombat, wattle, waratah, water hose…
