Rose Martin (1st Part / Zimbabwe Stamps)

[Zimbabwe] (b?/d?)

I must tell that it was for me very difficult for me to obtain data about Rose Martin and her work as a stamp designer.. she is mainly known as a Cartoonist and one of her works (' The Whenwes of Rhodesia' ) is very popular among White Rhodesian because it is a satiric view of the Return to Britain of some people who lived all their lives in Africa (in Portugal we had similar experiences...)..I will divide as in other cases , the 'Stamp' work of Rose Martin in different posts.. in this first post I will focus on Zimbabwe stamps...


Zimbabwe 1981 "International Year of the Disabled" (4,1) [Litho] Sc(438,...,441)

Zimbabwe 1982 "Scouting Year" (4,4,4) [Litho] Sc(452,...,455)

Zimbabwe 1982 "Centenary of the discovery of the tuberculosis Bacillus" (2,2,2) [Litho] Sc(456,457)

Zimbabwe 1983 "World Plowing Contest" (4,4,4) [Litho] Sc(462/Pair,463/Pair)
