Presentation packs are produced for certain stamp issues and provide in-depth commentary on the subject of the stamps, as well as a selection stamp products. They make beautiful gifts and are a product to be treasured.

Collect the set with the presentation pack for this issue with an essay by photographer Jonny Harrison. Jonny first made it to the ice for the 2016/17 season as summer electrician at Scott Base. Building on his passion for photography, Jonny continued to sharpen his skills through the season. As Winter Leader in the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Jonny discovered more opportunities to work in the harsh environment and experience all Scott Base has to offer. From taking photos in the depths of winter at temperatures as low as -70 degrees, through to the warmth of summer, Jonny has braved the elements to capture the Seasons of Scott Base.
