Royal Mail
Comic Book Stamps

Gosh!, Golly!, Gasp! And that was just us when we were asked by the Royal Mail to design a set of stamps celebrating 75yrs of classic British comics.

Eventually a fairly classic route was agreed upon featuring a typical cover along with a portrait of a favourite character. Dennis the Menace seems to feature in most people's favourites!

The final selection took many twists and involved many enjoyable hours rummaging through archives of various publishers before the final ten were decided upon.

The presentation packs and first day covers gave us more opportunity to replicate the gridded comic style, complete with coarse screen and 'Wow' splashes.

On the first day of issue, 20ft tall projections were beamed onto the headquarters of Beano and Dandy publishers D.C.Thomson.
