Individually, each stamp shows an animal at home, two of them cuddling up with the children. But put the stamps together in a pane of four and they become panes of glass, forming a window through which we view the complete scene, all the children and pets in one room.
This set was issued in October 2004 for Stamp Collecting Month
Designer Isabelle Toussaint prepared a set that served as a common background for each of the four stamp scenes, and photographer Marc Montplaisir shot each scene separately. The four best photographs were then pieced together to make a seamless composite image.
