The stamps have been designed by Quilliam Society member and artist Colleen Corlett who brings Quilliam's story to life using utilising photographs, portraits, statues and images of Quilliam memorabilia. Corlett has used a combination of digital and hand-painted content in addition to historical imagery she has included roundels on each stamp which are a mixture of portraits and relevant medallions and coins.
The issue text has been written by Frank Cowin, who, alongside Andrew Bond and Andrew Lambert, is the co-author of Favourite of Fortune, Captain John Quilliam, Hero of Trafalgar, the book for which the collection is named after.
