About Gairsay

Though the stamps are inscribed “Gairsay Islands”, Gairsay is, in fact, a single small island in Orkney, Scotland.

Gairsay’s stamps are believed to be the work of Clive Feigenbaum, who had previously created controversial issues in the 1970s and 1980s for Staffa, Eynhallow and elsewhere. They are fantasy issues rather than genuine local stamps, given that they are not thought to have ever served any actual postal function.
