2009 Wadfest. Music to die for

The Wadstock events are a family-friendly meeting of Discworld fans held yearly during August in Nottinghamshire, UK.  The 2009 theme was based around the Soul Music Discworld novel, so naturally the Grim Reaper was bound to be involved.

A pair of stamps were issued.  The 1 Wad depicting an hour-glass with music running out, while the 5 Wad showed Death playing his ‘geetar’.  Sizes are 32 x 26 mm and 47 x 37 mm respectively.  Both were perf 15 and were printed in A5 size sheets of 9.

There were 100 covers prepared with signed certificates of authenticity.  An A4 proof sheet included original artwork and colour trials of the stamps.  A pair of single stamps were available in a folder, while those ordering could qualify for a Big Thank You envelope containing extra stamps, including colour tests and their mythprints.  Orders also had a Bought at Wadfest label attached.
