In his own words he details the inspiration behind Isle of Man Post Office's six-stamp set showcasing some of the most substantial aspects of his life. Horology, innovation, creation, architecture and philanthropy are among the subjects covered, together with fantastic photography including pictures from inside his sensational Isle of Man house.
