The 150th anniversary of the birth of J M Barrie is being celebrated with the arrival of special stamps featuring Peter Pan.

The stamps depict selected images which appear in the fully illustrated edition of Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean. It is the only official sequel to Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy, which was sanctioned by Great Ormond Street Hospital to which Barrie gifted the rights to Peter Pan in 1929.

"I am thrilled that we have been able to celebrate the life of J M Barrie, who created what many consider to be one of the greatest and most influential fictional characters of all time," said Dawn Gallienne, head of philatelic at Guernsey Post. "The illustrations we have chosen from Peter Pan in Scarlet and for our miniature sheet work beautifully when presented on our stamps."
