This tribute to David Bowie gets our stamp of approval.
Britain’s postal service, the Royal Mail, is commemorating the late pop icon with a limited edition set of 10 postage stamps. The stamps highlight six of Bowie’s album covers — “Hunky Dory,” “Aladdin Sane,” “Heroes,” “Let’s Dance,” “Earthling” and “Blackstar” — and four of his tours.
”For five decades David Bowie was at the forefront of contemporary culture, and has influenced successive generations of musicians, artists, designers and writers,” Philip Parker, the Royal Mail’s stamp strategy manager, said via a press release on Wednesday. “Royal Mail’s stamp issue celebrates this unique figure and some of his many celebrated personas.”
Royal Mail printed stamp sets featuring The Beatles in 2010 and Pink Floyd in 2015. But the tribute to Bowie, who died in January 2016 at the age of 69, will be the first to honor an individual music artist or cultural figure.
