Dear Collector,

In this Bulletin, I have the unique experience of calling your

attention to the first stamp issue for the new nation of East

Timor which celebrated its independence on 20 May 2002.

For some time Australia Post has provided mail services

to our armed forces in East Timor where we experienced first

hand the challenges facing the new nation. Because of that

experience the United Nations proposed that we were well

placed to provide East Timor’s new postal administration

with practical start up help. We responded with a project in

which Post would design and print the new nation’s first

stamp issue, and sell these stamps to collectors on behalf

of East Timor, at no cost to East Timor.

For the designs, our primary responsibility was to ensure

that the stamps reflect the spirit and culture of the East Timor

community. One of the first things we did, was send

Janet Boschen, the manager of our design studio, to East

Timor, where she consulted with a wide range of individuals

and organisations. You can see the results of Janet’s work and

read about the designs on the following pages.

I am proud of Post’s involvement in this project and to

be able to give Australians the opportunity to acquire this

new nation’s first stamp issue. The stamps represent a special

piece of philatelic history; mark a momentous time for the

East Timorese people; and provide readers an opportunity

to contribute to East Timor’s development. We are selling the

stamps on behalf of East Timor. All proceeds go directly to

the government of East Timor.

Locally, I think the highlight of this Bulletin is the issue

commemorating the birth centenary of Albert Namatjira.

I never tire of his beautiful paintings of central Australia.

I am sure they will inspire you as well.

Finally I want to call your attention to the letter sent with

this Bulletin. The letter explains in detail the need to introduce

postage and handling charges ($3.00 for standing

orders, $5.00 for ad hoc orders). These charges take effect

from 1 August 2002. These changes are not taken lightly, they

are a response to an extensive and ongoing review of our costs

and services. These and any future changes reflect our

commitment to supporting the collecting community

by providing a viable service to the collectors of today and

tomorrow.

Until next time,

David Maiden, Manager, Philatelic Group

Stamps for a new nation

When Janet Boschen, Manager of Australia

Post’s design studio, went to East Timor she

noticed the brightly coloured hand-woven

cloth, called tais (pronounced ‘tice’). As she

consulted with the people of East Timor she

learnt the cloth’s cultural significance went

far deeper than its use in traditional clothing

and decoration.

“The tais is a natural symbol. The making

of the cloth – colouring the thread, hand

weaving and teaching the designs – is a long

standing form of cultural communication.

For East Timor, the tais has always connected

the past, present and future.

“After the country’s first free elections the

newly elected leaders sat under a canopy of tais

at the new National Council Hall.

“Each region has its own style of weaving,

producing distinctive tais patterns, symbols and

colours. I asked the Murak Rai Foundation in

Dili to create a new tais, one that had never

been seen, a ‘united tais’ that would weave the

thirteen regional designs in a single cloth”.

Stamp design

The national tais is used as a unifying design

element and as a symbol of the weaving

together of past and present to create the new

country’s future. There are four designs and

denominations in the issue. Denominations

are in American dollars, East Timor’s initial

currency. The language used is Portuguese, the

country's official language. The stamp pack and

first day cover text is in Portuguese and English.

20 May 2002

Crocodile (US 25c)

A stylised crocodile represents the Timorese

foundation story of a transcendent friendship

between a baby crocodile and a boy. Their

friendship lasts a lifetime and the grateful

crocodile turns himself into land (Timor) to

sustain the boy and his descendants, the

Timorese people.

Palm Frond (US 50c)

Ceremonial palm fronds, a traditional symbol

of welcome in East Timor, are shown on the

beach at Dili, the new nation’s capital.

Coffee (US$1.00)

The coffee fruit, plants and the young East

Timorese symbolise the 90 per cent of the

country’s population who live in rural areas,

and the potential for further development of

the export economy.

Flag (US$2.00)

The Democratic Republic of East Timor’s flag is

black, yellow, red and white, representing the

obscurantism that needs to be overcome; the

wealth of the country; the struggle for national

liberation and peace.

Australia Post

Australia Post is producing the stamps and

marketing East Timor’s first stamps as a gesture

of friendship and goodwill to the East Timorese

people. Post is meeting the costs of design,

production and distribution.

Nature of

AUSTRALIA Desert

Nature of Australia, the series

The desert habitat was introduced in August

2001 with the Desert Birds issue. This is the

fourth issue in the Nature of Australia definitive

series. The first issue in the series was released

in 1996. Rather than using general illustrations

of broad environmental categories, Australia

Post’s design approach has been to use specific

habitats and the flora and/or fauna found there.

4 June 2002

These specific habitats have been used to

illustrate descriptive environmental categories

such as rainforest, eucalypt forest, grassland,

desert, coastal or wetlands.

Australia’s major deserts are distributed

throughout the western plateau and interior

lowlands. About 18 per cent of mainland

Australia is desert.

The habitat

The Great Sandy Desert is in Western

Australia and the Northern Territory.

It covers about 395,250 km sq, or 5.1 per

cent of Australia and is the largest desert in

Australia. The region is located more than

900 km north east of Perth and is bordered

by the Little Sandy Desert, Gibson Desert

and Central Ranges in the south, and the

Kimberley in the north.

The region consists mainly of sand plains

and dunes covered with spinifex, with patches

of desert oak. This landscape is relieved by

emergent sandstone hills and chains of

ephemeral salt lakes.

The issue

Spinifex grass (genus Triodia) is used as a motif

connecting the four designs. Spinifex grassland

is the single most extensive type of vegetation in

Australia, covering more than 20 per cent of the

continent. In a country known for its infertile

soils, spinifex thrives on some of the poorest

soils in Australia, including the parched sands

of the Great Sandy Desert.

As well as the stamps, the issue includes

a first day cover, stamp pack and a set of four

maximum cards.

The designer is Wayne Rankin, who has

designed all the stamps in the Nature of

Australia series.

The stamps

50 c Desert star flower (Calytrix carinata)

With its spectacular pink or purple flowers this

shrub grows up to three metres high and

on red sand or gravelly rust-coloured clay.

$1.00 Bilby (Macrotis lagotis)

A member of the bandicoot family, the bilby

has long ears, soft blue-grey fur and a pointed

snout. Once found throughout arid and

semi-arid Australia, it is now confined to

northern deserts and is a threatened species.

$1.50 Thorny devil (Moloch horridus)

The Great Sandy Desert has more reptile

species than any other desert in the world

and the thorny devil is one of the more

spectacular reptiles found there. Despite its

appearance the thorny devil is harmless.

It grows to about 20 cm in length and lives

entirely on a diet of black ants.

$2.00 Great Sandy Desert

The designer has used the powerful red earth

and blue sky to evoke the intensity and

atmosphere of the Great Sandy Desert’s

landscape and habitat.

Sand dunes – powerfully evocative of the

Great Sandy Desert – desert oaks (Allocasuarina

decaisneana) and white-backed swallows

(Cheramoeca leucosternum) feeding gracefully

in the distance – provide dramatic points of

interest.

BIRTH CENTENARY ALBERT NAMATJIRA

Albert Namatjira was the first Indigenous artist

to paint and exhibit professionally in a Western

style. He was both prodigious and successful.

During his lifetime he produced some two

thousand pictures and founded a school of

painting that still continues among his Western

Aranda relatives and other Aranda peoples

The artist

Albert Namatjira was born on 28 July 1902 near

Ntaria into the Kngwarriya skin. Like his

parents he was baptised as a Christian. During

his early life at Hermannsburg he attended the

church, lived for part of the time in the boys’

dormitory, and attended school. At the same

time, he was initiated into the Aranda system of

beliefs, obligations and traditions.

As a boy he participated in craft enterprises

designed to help support the mission, which the

missionaries hoped eventually would become

a self-sustaining community. He also worked

as a blacksmith, stockman and camel driver.

Namatjira was a young man when he married.

He and his wife Rubina had nine children, two

of whom died in infancy.

Namatjira met watercolourist Rex Battarbee

in 1934 when Battarbee and John Gardner held

an exhibition in Hermannsburg. Namatjira was

8

Shown 77% actual size

very keen to try his own hand at painting. At

a time when the mission was gripped with

poverty, he knew that painting offered a way

of earning a good living. He persuaded Pastor

Albrecht to buy him some watercolours and

completed his first painting in 1935.

In 1936 Battarbee took Namatjira on an

eight-week painting tour. The tour was the

beginning of a long association between the

two men and the first of many painting trips

Namatjira took over the next 20 years.

Namatjira’s first solo exhibition of 41 works

was held in 1938 in Melbourne. All works sold

quickly. By 1948 he had held nine exhibitions in

various capital cities of Australia and had

become a celebrity.

Before his death in 1959 at least three films

had been made about him; he was awarded the

Queen’s Coronation medal in 1953; in 1954 he

was flown to Canberra to meet the Queen and

the Duke of Edinburgh; he was made an

Associate of the Royal Art Society Gallery in

Adelaide; his portrait, by William Dargie, won

the Archibald Prize in 1956; and in 1957 he was

granted citizenship.

In the Australia of the late 1950s citizenship

created conflicting demands on Namatjira. As a

citizen, unlike the rest of his people, Namatjira

had legal access to alcohol – another thing

forbidden to his people.

Kinship obligations, however, operated

according to different laws. In 1958 Namatjira

was arrested for leaving wine where it was

accessible to his relatives. He was sentenced

to six months imprisonment. After the

Governor-General intervened Namatjira was

allowed to serve the sentence on the Papunya

Aboriginal settlement. Although Namatjira was

released after two months, his health had

already deterioriated in recent years. Soon after

his release he suffered a heart attack. Namatjira

died in Alice Springs on 8 August 1959, aged 57.

Namatjira’s paintings

Namatjira painted his country, its ranges, sand

hills, open plains, grass trees, ghost gums and

corkwoods, gorges, chasms, waterholes and

mountains.

After Namatjira’s death some critics and art

authorities dismissed his work as unworthy of

serious consideration. In recent years there has

been a resurgence of interest in Namatjira’s

paintings. They were the focal point of the

opening of the Araluen Arts Centre in Alice

Springs in 1984. His legacy was examined in a

major survey of Aranda artists in 1992 and his

work is the subject of a National Gallery of

Australia travelling exhibition this year.

In the light of increased knowledge of

Aboriginal culture and attachment to ‘country’,

it is now argued that Namatjira’s paintings were

a way of reaffirming his tribal territorial knowledge

while sharing his pride in its beauty. This

reassessment recognises the skill and delicacy of

his painting as well as the spiritual quality and

symbolism of his motifs. As artist Robert

Juniper has said, “He was painting his life”.

Namatjira’s legacy

Namatjira was a pioneer who opened the way

for others. Of his immediate family, his sons

Enos, Oscar, Ewald, Keith and Maurice, and his

grandchildren, Gabriel and Jillian, also became

successful watercolourists. Countrymen such as

Otto, Reuben and Edwin Pareroultja, who

accompanied Namatjira on painting trips, are

also recognised watercolour artists and the

Hermannsburg school of art and crafts

continues to thrive today.

This stamp issue highlights Antarctic

research at Davis, Casey, Macquarie Island

and Mawson base stations.

Design approach

There are four stamps in the issue, one for

each of the stations. Each stamp combines a

foreground image – depicting a representative

research activity – with station buildings in the

background. At the bases the station buildings

are colour-coded according to function. The

strong colours used in the design echo this

colour coding and highlight the vital role of the

structures in the harsh conditions of base life.

A common design element in the issue is

the globe. On each stamp the globe shows the

station’s location and an arching horizon line

suggests the ‘living on the edge of the world’

feeling Antarctic researchers describe.

12

Stamp pack

The stamps

Davis Station’s atmospheric science research is

represented by the Light Detection and

Ranging Instrument. By analysing long-term

trends in the atmosphere scientists aim to

provide evidence of global climate change. The

lights of the aurora australis can be seen in the

background.

Casey Station’s research into human impacts

on the environment is represented by an image

of a diatom magnified thousands of times by an

electron microscope. Casey specialises in

human impacts research as the Americans

bequeathed the Australians a site heavily

contaminated with fuel and waste. Measuring

the quantities of diatoms in the sea helps

scientists determine how we can remedy past

damage inflicted on the Antarctic environment.

First day cover

Maximum cards

Macquarie Island Station’s biological

research is representedby an image of a

wandering albatross. The birds are caught in

fishing lines and populations of albatrosses

have declined across the southern ocean.

Wandering albatrosses are found right

across the Southern Ocean. They breed in

various places including Macquarie Island.

Long-term research is monitoring the status of

and trends in albatross populations.

2 July 2002

Mawson Station’s biological research is

represented by an image of an Adèlie penguin.

These birds return to their original breeding

colony and attempt to mate with the same

partner each year. Mawson’s research includes

field studies of the penguin’s breeding and

feeding habits. The Adèlie penguin also

appeared in the Australia’s Antarctic Penguins

issue (July 2000).

A collector’s guide to

Special Event Souvenir sheets

The introduction of Personalised Stamps in

September 1999 led to the development of a

new product, the Special Event Souvenir sheet

(SES sheet). From time to time these sheets

have appeared in the Bulletin.

You may have noticed increased references

to SES sheets in the Bulletin and the popular

press in recent months. This coverage by the

popular press may have inadvertently caused

confusion amongst those with the keenest

interest in stamps: stamp collectors.

We hope this overview clarifies what SES

sheets are, and where they fit in the world of

stamps and collecting. We’ll start with an

explanation of what SES sheets are not:

SES sheets are not

•new stamp issues

•required in ‘complete collections’ of Australian stamps

SES sheets are

•’high volume’ Personalised Stamp sheets

• produced by Post with or on behalf of third parties

SES sheets vs stamp issues

Each A4 SES sheet features either 10 or 20

stamps with tabs, and a decorative border. The

stamp used must be from the range of

Personalised Stamps available at the time of

order. Any image and/or text in the tabs and

border is subject to the standard terms and

conditions (regarding copyright for example)

for Personalised Stamps.

As with all tabbed stamp designs only the

non-stamp areas can be personalised: this

means the tab area for standard Personalised

Stamps. Because of the high volumes for SES

sheets (minimum 250 sheets) both the tab and

the decorative border can be customised.

Although not primarily designed for the

classic philatalist, SES sheets help raise the

awareness of stamps and stamp collecting

throughout the general community.

14

There are two basic types of SES sheet

Type One

created by Australia Post in cooperation with a third

party for sale to the public:

• with an Australia Post logo

• and for which Post has negotiated copy and

other intellectual property rights.

The price for these reflects the:

• special printing method

• face value of the stamps

• copyright and other fees for the use of images

and other third-party intellectual property.

At present the price for sheets of 10 x 45c stamps is

$16.00, $19.95 for sheets of 20 x 45c.

Examples include Footy (pg 18), Davis Cup and

LLeyton Hewittand Stawell Gift (pg 15).

Type Two

created by Australia Post on behalf of a customer,

for that customer’s exclusive use:

• without an Australia Post logo

• and for which the customer negotiates copy and

other intellectual property rights

Because these SES sheets can be used or sold at the

customer’s discretion:

• prices are set by the customer.

Although some customers are happy for Post to

advise the public about the availability of their

International

Year of the Volunteer

In 2001 Australia Post recognised Australian

volunteer’s efforts during the International Year

of the Volunteer (IYV).

Post produced sheets, which organisations

could personalise in several ways. Individuals

could also participate.The sheets were sold to

organisations and individuals for $12.00

(normally $16.00) and $2.00 from each sheet

sold was donated to the purchaser’s chosen

organisation.

Response

Altogether 4000 sheets generated $8,000 in

contributions which were distributed amongst

more than 135 volunteer groups. Contributions

went to groups in all states and territories.

The offer, which closed 31 December 2001, was

a rewarding project and a tremendous success

for everyone who participated.

2002 Australia Post

General Purpose Covers

New general purpose cover design

A new general purpose cover (illustrated

below) has been designed and released for use.

The previous design – illustrated with a

montage of Australian stamps – has been in

circulation since mid 1998. That design has

not been withdrawn, but no new stock will be

printed. New cover stock will be introduced

gradually, becoming available at individual

outlets as it is needed to replenish stock. At the

time of writing the Australian Philatelic

Bureau, Mail Order had some.

During this transition both covers will be in

circulation, requests for general purpose cover

will be filled with whichever stock is on hand.

2001 AAT ANARE Base FDI Covers

About 120 Australians spend a full year at one

of the four ANARE stations. They are isolated

from the world for up to eight months, until

the the supply ships arrive at the stations.

The majority of Australian Antarctic

Territory (AAT) stamps are used by Australians

stationed at one of the four ANARE stations.

Philatelic mail is not sent to the Antarctic.

Orders and covers submitted for postmarking

are processed in Australia to reflect the supply

ships’ arrival dates at each of the four bases.

Each station has its own unique pictorial

postmark. The first day of issue for each station

is the date the supply ship arrives at the station.

All ships arrived safely at the respective stations.

Post had two AAT stamp issues in 2001

(covers illustrated at right). The covers will

be available by mail order from the Australian

Philatelic Bureau from 1 July 2002.
