Sales to the Pitcairn Islands?

Recommended Posts

I have today sold a photo to the Pitcairn Islands for use in a textbook. 

Print run - up to 5,000.

Population of the Pitcairn Islands - 48.

That's optimistic.

 

Has anyone else ever had one of these?

Perhaps the entire population is employed at a textbook publisher.

Phil - Good for you - it doesn't matter where the sales come from. In additional to being obsessional about photos I also collect stamps (!)   :ph34r: . The Pitcairn islands issue about 8 sets of stamps a year, and they are not for the use of the islanders but collectors around the world. Same I suspect with textbooks etc.

 

The history of the islanders being descended from Fletcher Christian and the mutineers on the Bounty has a worldwide interest and the only income for the islanders is stamps, books etc.

Haha! That's great.

 

My great great great grandfather was the Bosun of HMS Bounty and that's a whole family story in itself that I won't bore anyone with.

I had one of those too!  My image was of a fountain in a public park in Warsaw, Poland.  What was yours of?

I have talked to Pitcairn on my ham radio and still have the QSL card and the envelope and stamp that got it here.
