Album Cover Stamp

The Royal Mail will launch its first set of ten 1st class stamps designed by Studio Dempsey that celebrate classic British album covers - in a uniquely shaped like a vinyl disc poking out of each record sleeve. To select the best 10 albums sleeves, Royal Mail has asked for help from various sources to list the most significant album sleeve artwork used on records by British artists. The final selection are:

Pink Floyd- The Division Bell (1994)
Coldplay- A Rush Of Blood To The Head (2002)
The Clash-London Calling (1979)
Mike Oldfield- Tubular Bells (1973)
Rolling Stones- Let It Bleed (1969)
David Bowie- The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)
Led Zeppelin IV (1971)
Primal Scream- Screamadelica (1991)
Blur- Parklife
New Order- Power, Corruption and Lies

This stamp issue salutes this unique art form and celebrates some of the greatest examples, used by UK artists.

This band of designers and photographers have not only reflected the visual styles of many musical cultures, but have also defined and created them, too. The stamp issue explores some of the most potent graphic images of modern times, many of which have provided a visual soundtrack to people’s lives.

The stamps will be launch on January 7, 2010.
