Classic Album Covers

Article image

Great music and great art – Royal Mail will launch its 2010 Special Stamps programme with ten iconic album covers from the past four decades.

Classic Album Covers, released on 7 January, features some of the greatest examples of album design, created for UK music artists and brought to life on ten First Class stamps.

The design of each stamp shows a classic album cover, but with a musical twist – an arc of vinyl emerges outside the die-cut of the stamp.

For decades the album sleeve has been the canvas for some of the most imaginative graphic artists in the world, and this issue celebrates this unique art form and some of its greatest examples.

There will be a range of stamp products, including an illustrated Presentation Pack, a First Day Cover, and a unique stamp book.

More information will be available closer to the issue date from www.royalmail.com/stamps
