THE STAMPS OF TRITON STATION

Triton Station is a colony established by entrepeneurs from Titania, the largest moon of Neptune. Finding that Titania was largely occupied by the Gondwilli people  a few of the folk who had come from Syzygium, on the dark side of earth's Moon, tried their luck at colonizing the region of Uranus.

On Triton, a moon of  Uranus, they found a colony of indigenous beings, related to people from Worm World.

Instead of battling the indigenous population as had done on Titania, the postal admistration of Triton Station has honored their forebears in the far reaches of space. Below are rare images of the mysterious Worm People, known today mostly for their network of tunnels that criss-cross the universe.

BINKY'S STAMP BARN

Binky McTool, the Syzydite paraphilatelist, had created the largest stamp emporium in our solar system on Titania. Binky was also postmaster of the hominid side of Titania, while the Gondwilli people, actually prehominids from Gondwanaland, occupied most of this Neptunian moon.

Some conjecture that McTool represents a second cousin of Scarabeus Binkel, known today on earth for his various stamp empires, catalogs and many stamp creations.

It is said, however that it was Qwantus Qwo, postmaster of the Moon whose vast edition called 'A CATALOG OF STAMPS OF THE KNOWN UNIVERSE' is today described as a chief reference tool for many.

JACK'S GRILL AND OASIS

Towards the early years of the 19th century a certain Captain Jack became known as a great explorer of the mysteries of Africa. 

Jack established a pub on the shores of the Nile, which outlived him by many years, and is said to be honored by Jack's mummy serving as bartender to this day, thanks to the forgotten science of the funerary illuminati of the Nile.

Jack set up a local post, for which he created a series of local post stamps, now mostly quite rare, and mostly lost or damaged by babboon bites, as the banana gum on the backs of the stamps was too much of a temptation to the aforementioned anthropoidal connoiseurs.

Jack's pub is famous for it's fermented toddy, the recipe of which has been kept secret for centuries and is now one of the Eight Mysteries of Neferneferland.

JOHN LEE HOOKER MUSIC FESTIVAL

If one carefully examines the map of Neferneferland one will discover not only the ancient city of Memphis, which in modern times had a town in Tennessee named after it, but also the ancient city of Nashville, similarly honored by some strange coincidence also in Tennessee.

When asked about this,  Ms.Tinker Belle, the stage manager of the John Lee Hooker Festival, referred us to the works of Edgar Cayce for elucidation of this point. Others may cite obscure texts found in versions of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, a text popularized in the 20th century by Carl Jung and Jerry Garcia.

Nefer, of course, means 'beautiful' in the ancient Egyptian language.

AL TAZWIR

Al Tazwir is the southernmost of the Zababbian Emirates founded by Sheik Zababba. Al Tazwir translates as 'The Forgery' as the Emir of Al Tazwir was known by his shipmates aboard Scarabeus Binkel's flagship as 'The Forger.'

The stamps of Al Tazwir ironically are not forgeries, but a foil, as acceptable examples of vintage collage art, for the emir's faux birth certificate and passport service. The passports are sold cheap to customers of the sheik's ferry service on Lake Wahmia.  A special discount is offfered to pirates except the nefarious pirates of Digbyland. The certificates are useful on the local lake where the only local officials are Wahmian Wharf rats....but they seldom fool customs services in outlying lands. LOL

BRITISH ART ON THE STAMPS OF AL TAZWIR

The art of Dante Gabriel Rossetti appears on the above cover. Rossetti was the founder of the Preraphaelite art movement from Britain.

The desert peoples of the Zababbian region much appreciate the exotic fine arts of the northern countries.
