To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the coronation of ‘Bluff King Hal’ Guernsey Post commissioned a fabulous series of paper sculptures created by talented artist Gail Armstrong.

Each sculpture; perfect in every diminutive detail, was then photographed to create a unique series of stamps, which all depict a key highlight in Henry’s dynamic life and reign.

Born at Grenwich Palace in 1491 the second son of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, Henry VIII came to the throne in 1509, just weeks after his marriage to Katherine of Aragon.
