2019 marks the 200th birth anniversary of George Eliot, one of the most important writers of the 19th century. Eliot, whose real name was Mary Ann Evans, visited Jersey in the summer of 1857 and stayed for three months with her partner George Lewes. This stamp issue shows Jersey as it might have been seen through the eyes of George Eliot in the summer of 1857. The six stamps feature Jersey scenes that have been reinterpreted and painted using descriptions taken from the writer's journals and letters. A quote from Eliot has been incorporated into each of the designs.
