The set is made up of four pairs of stamps, each pair featuring two illustrations from one of Rupert’s adventures - Ruperts Rainy Adventure (1944), Rupert and the Mare’s Nest (1952), Rupert And The Lost Cuckoo (1963) and Ruperts Christmas Tree (1947).
Rupert made his first appearance in the Daily Express on 8 November 1920. Herbert Tourtel, who wrote the stories, was an editor at the Express, and his wife, Mary, was the illustrator.
