Ian Fleming’s James Bond Stamps

Well, it’s almost Christmas and many activities are going on lately. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything to blog other than stamps.

The Royal Mail recently launched a special stamps issue to commemorate the centenary of the birth of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming, as well as the 50th anniversary of the publication of Dr No, the first Bond novel to be filmed. The books illustrated in the stamps are Casino Royale, Dr No, Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, For Your Eyes Only and From Russia with Love.

Although these stamps are available for purchase now, these stamps would only be dispatched on January 2008. I bought mine already, together with Christmas stamps! 😀

Royal Mail – Ian Fleming’s James Bond

Beatles covers on upcoming UK stamps

All my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

aaa.. My favourite Beatles track.
On 9 January 2007, the UK Royal Mail will be launching stamps with the covers of the now defunct 1960s Beatles band .

The Beatles are to appear on a set of stamps featuring images of their most famous album covers.

The collection of six stamps includes covers of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road, Revolver, Let It Be and With The Beatles.

The stamps will go on sale in January 2007 as a tribute to the band.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: “The Beatles special stamps promise to be a big hit with fans the world over when they go on sale.”
He continued: “Royal Mail is featuring some 1st Class Beatles album covers to commemorate the UK band that stands for all that’s great in popular culture.”
