AFTER the death of martial arts novelist Louis Cha (查良鏞), whose pen name is Jin Yong, in October, Hongkong Post announced that it will release a stamp collection and related products based on the characters in Jin Yong’s novels on 6 December.
The stamps will feature main characters from seven of Jin Yong’s 15 novels, including the Condor trilogy (射鵰三部曲), The Deer and the Cauldron (鹿鼎記), and Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils (天龍八部).
These characters were first painted in the style of traditional Chinese ink paintings by Lee Chi-ching (李志清), then developed into stamp art by designer Gideon Lai Waikwan (賴維鈞).
