I was searching the web for a picture of the butterflies custom booklet and came upon a blog called Stamp Crazy
I was pleased not only to find a pic of the booklet I was looking for but also a reference to the fact that the author also collects and writes about our favorite Machin stamps in the form of a mini diary. It looks as though we have another budding Machin Maniac in the wings. Whoever the owner is, your site has some interesting reading and
you will be pleased to know I am adding your site to our series of Machin links. Keep up the good work.
The Butterflies booklet was issued on 11 July 2013, The booklet contains 4 1st Class stamps in the new 'Royal Mail Red' with M13L date code and MCIL source code.
Last week I posted a picture of a cover showing the next custom booklet which will be issued in September, I can now show you a mock up image of the booklet, which I I also found on my virtual travels. You will notice the four Machins are of a deeper shade of red than the previous booklet.I have also learned that a prestige booklet depicting the Merchant Navy will be issued on the same day (19th September 2013). I do not know at this time if a se-tenant pane of Machin definitives will be included in the booklet, but will let you know as soon as I find out. Below is a mock up of whist the cover will look like.
