The Hearts of Ellan Vannin - Manx Towns & Villages by Adam Berry

Collection Issue Date: 19th January 2017

Beautiful graphic interpretations of Manx towns and Villages.

We are pleased to present this set of six stamps by Manx artist and designer Adam Berry featuring some of the Island's most beautiful towns and villages. Adam's graphic style is a nod to the golden age of the tourist and transport poster of the twentieth century, when the Island was a leading destination for British seaside holidaymakers.

Adam Berry
Adam is a full time artist and graphic designer, born and bred on the Isle of Man. Raised in Onchan, taking an interest in art from a young age, following in his parents' footsteps, both of whom attended the almost-legendary Kensington Road Art School in Douglas.

Adam exhibits regularly on the Isle of Man and his exhibition Hullabaloo was the product of a year as Artist in Residence at The Sayle Gallery in Douglas. Aside from the crisp flat graphic style that he has employed for the stamps, he has used psychedelic colours, flowing shapes and pointillism in his paintings and design commissions which has led to a bright, detailed, fresh look at the Isle of Man.
