Guernsey Post’s philatelic bureau has issued Bailiwick Christmas stamps depicting scenes from the story of Jesus’s birth, as described in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.

Guernsey’s stamps (51p, 56p, 79p, 87p, £1.21, £1.39, £1.50 and £4.93) have been created by talented artist and book illustrator, Alexandra Ball, whose particular style brings a contemporary feel to the Nativity story.

Bridget Yabsley, Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, said:
