The first Transcamster Bog stamp from 2016 – a 35p value depicting a sheep – used on a cover from Canada to the UK in 2022.
We have pixelated the address of the recipient and sender for the purposes of our illustration – on the actual cover it is legible.
About Transcamster Bog
The entertaining and attractive labels bearing the name "Transcamster Bog", first produced in 2016, are the work of the Bog’s “Laird”, Canada-based science-fiction writer Derwin Mak.
The actual Bog, however, is situated in Scotland. As Mak explains on his eBay listings, “Transcamster Bog is a small, landlocked property of two non-continguous plots of peat bog in Caithness, Scotland. The name "Transcamster" comes from the necessity of having to cross Camster to go from one plot to the other. There’s a tradition of British island owners issuing local stamps for their islands, so why not be the first to issue stamps for landlocked property?”
All Transcamster Bog stamps are imperforate and ungummed, though the quality of print is good.
