Claude Cahun, born Lucie Renee Mathilde Schwob, was a French surrealist photographer, sculptor and writer. Best known for her androgynous self-portraits, she is famous for creating some of the most startlingly original and enigmatic photographic images of the twentieth century, which focus on the themes of identity, gender and the subconscious mind.

This stamp issue features eight of Cahun's photographs, showcasing her work over the decades. The 80p stamp carries the logo of SEPAC, the Small European Postal Administration Co-Operation, and forms part of a joint stamp issue entitled Art in the National Collection.

The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer's marks and any additional information on the selvedges. The selvedges include the traffic lights which is a term used by collectors to denote the check dots (or colour dabs) printed in the sheet margins of stamps printed by modern offset litho or photogravure methods. They assist in checking that all the colours have printed correctly.

Most of our selvedge sheets also contain a plate number; a numeral, occasionally with a letter suffix, usually inscribed on the sheet margins to denote the plate from which the stamps were printed - for example 1A.

All our mint/cto products are carefully prepared by our own team and supplied in glassine bags to ensure you receive them in pristine condition.
