Philately will Get you Nowhere

I've never been a stamp collector, and I'm not sure the new Jane Austen set would persuade me to take it up. But Margaret Mahy? What's not to like? Who wouldn't want a Changeover stamp (even at NZ$2.90) to commemorate the stamp-wielding Laura Chant, or a Word Witch stamp (a snip at NZ$1.90) by which to remember Mahy herself - who in her capacity as librarian was also a dab-handed stamper?

I wish they'd do a DWJ set, though.
