You can find more about the 1988 stamps and individual pictures at this website:

We hope that more special first day covers are designed  for the 2012 celebrations.

Maybe you could ask students to design some nonsensical commemorative stamps for Edward Lear’s birthday, maybe to go with an invitation to a nonsense birthday party for Mr. Lear?
