The British Royal Mail adds a new pillar to its Music Giants Special Stamp series, with a tribute to David Bowie. The special issue features also several limited edition David Bowie souvenirs, some of which come in only 950 pieces, alongside the Special Stamps, First Day Covers and Presentation Pack. The decision was commented as follows: “Throughout his long career, Bowie was hugely influential in both music and culture, with a rare ability to foresee trends in music and fashion. So we’re proud to pay tribute to rock’s most fearless artist”. Among other famous names welcomed the Royal Mail we find the Pink Floyd, Agatha Christie, Star Wars and Beatrix Potter.
