Ever since the Silver Jubilee omnibus set of 1935, the British Commonwealth have been in love with this format. And so, every now and then omnibus sets have appeared. In the beginning these were based upon a basic design which would be used for most if not all countries. One of the omnibus sets I like most (apart from that Silver Jubilee set) is the Peace set from 1946.
I think the design is stunning (if slightly patriotic!) and most stamps are of a nice, light pastel colour. Very stylish!
