The delightful illustrations created for this collection were produced by Mary Cousins, a Manx-born published illustrator and award-winning artist. Mary has created a story in pictures which is aimed to encourage the popular use of the Manx language.

This issue sees a collaboration with Culture Vannin and coincides with the 120th anniversary of the Manx Language Society and the International Year of Indigenous Languages 2019, of which Culture Vannin is a partner organisation.

The Manx language is one of the Island's most important cultural assets; it is an Island success story and something in which we all can take great pride. Isle of Man Post Office is therefore proud to issue this wonderful set of six joyful stamps which tells the story of a day in the life of two Manx mice and forms an introduction to basic greetings in Manx Gaelic.

  • 1st - Moghrey Mie (Morr-a-My) – Good Morning: An early rise on a beautiful sunny morning.
  • EU - Kys T'ou (Kis-Tow) – How Are You?: The first to arrive at the Tynwald Fair.
  • Large - Slaynt Vie (Slent-Vy) – Cheers (or Good Health): In view of Culture Vannin HQ sampling takes place in the Manx produce tent.
  • £1:30 - Fastyr Mie (Fass-ter-My) – Good Afternoon (or Evening): Time enough for an ice cream on Port Erin beach.
  • RoW - Slane Lhiu (Slenn-L'yoo) – Goodbye (plural): Sailing home as the sun sets.
  • £2:05 – Oie Vie (Ee-Vy) – Good Night: The end of a perfect day.

This wonderful deluxe envelope features all six of the fun and charming Greetings in Manx stamps, cancelled with a special postmark for the first date of issue.
