You Can Now Buy David Bowie Stamps In U.K

So, listen up, gang: Now would be a really good time to get a British pen pal. Or maybe just go to London and clean out a post office.

The Royal Mail today announced that it is releasing a set of 10 postage stamps commemorating the late David Bowie, who died in January 2016. The stamps will be circulated from March 14, but are available for pre-order now.

Whether your peak-Bowie preferences run from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke, there’s a stamp sure to appeal. The set features homages to the album covers for Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Heroes, Let’s Dance, Earthling, and Blackstar. The 1973 Ziggy Stardust tour, the 1978 Stage tour, the 1983 Serious Moonlight tour, and the 2004 Reality tour are also commemorated.

This SpecialStamp features one of #DavidBowie’s most iconic images, the cover of his 6th studio album Aladdin Sane, shot by photographer Brian Duffy.

“For five decades David Bowie was at the forefront of contemporary culture, and has influenced successive generations of musicians, artists, designers, and writers,” the Royal Mail’s Philip Parker said in a statement to The Guardian. “Royal Mail’s stamp issue celebrates this unique figure and some of his many celebrated personas.”

Feast your eyes on these babies. Is this the best thing to happen to snail mail, or what?

This #SpecialStamp features the cover of Bowie’s 18th album ‘Let’s Dance’, his most commercially successful release to date, featuring three of his most famous songs: ‘Let’s Dance’ ‘China Girl’ and ‘Modern Love’.

Heroes was Bowie’s 12th album, and the only one of the ‘Berlin Trilogy’ fully recorded in Germany. The album features #BrianEno and @TonyVisconti on multiple tracks, as well as the track title, which remains one of Bowie’s most recognisable songs to date. – – – – – – – #DavidBowie #DavidBowieStamp #SpecialStamps #TheThinWhiteDuke #ZiggyStardust #HunkyDory #RoyalMailStamps #StampCollection #Collectible #BowieCollectible #BowieForever #RoyalMail #BritishStamps #BritishIcon #Heroes #DavidBowieHeroes #TonyVisconti #BerlinTrilogy – – – – – – @terryoneillofficial @davidbowieisjp @davidbowieisitalia @davidbowieisbcn @uncut_magazine @helengreeen @bbc6music @qmagazineuk @nmemagazine
