Just as long as I don't have to listen to the albums.

Awful stuff, particularly when viewed against the things Hipgnosis were coming up with at the time.

Massive Dendrophile.

They look nice, but my stamp collecting days are long gone.

And the album covers are more my size.

Especially at my age.

This will be a huge boost for tourism to the Isle of Man: who knew the scenery there was so remarkable?

Remember, you have to lick them close to the edge, and some of the stamps are very fragile

I didn't think you could portray the living on UK stamps.

There must BCB something we can do about that :idea: :idea:

why yes. i call the series, islands of bitchass.

it can be yers for a mere $186.91 (plus shipping and handling.) for that price, you get all 37 original works of art in the series, without the pesky sticky stuff on the back you don't wanna be licking anyway.

Keep up kath. It's not not the living that can be displayed, ie to be not on a stamp you simply cannot not be alive, absolutely not.

http://gbstamp.co.uk/article/living-peo ... s-132.html

"For a long time Britain's Royal Mail maintained a rigid policy of only showing images depicting the reigning monarch and members of the Royal Family (or marrying into the Royal Family) on postage stamps. Long dead historical figures such as William Shakespeare were allowed but no other living people were ever depicted on stamps.

The policy has rarely been relaxed even today but the first such instance arguably occured in 1967 with the issue commemorating Sir Francis Chichester's first solo round the world voyage in his boat Gipsy Moth IV. As a person was depicted on the boat within the stamp design - albeit in a tiny and unidentifiable form – many people assume that must be a depiction of Francis Chichester. Another occurance was the 1999 Freddie Mercury stamp where the drummer seen in the background can be assumed to be Roger Taylor (drummer for Queen).

The rule was more formally relaxed in 2003 when England beat Australia to win the Rugby World Cup resulting in a commemorative miniature sheet of four stamps. Although images of the winning team members were featured none of the players faces were shown.

It wasn't until October 2005 and the stamps commemorating England's victory over Australia in the 2005 Ashes cricket series that the policy was obviously knowingly reversed. These stamps clearly depict members of the winning England team including Michael Vaughan (Captain) and all rounder "Freddie" Flintoff"

And, anyway, the Isle Of Man is not a part of the UK.

i would remind you that, like the isle of man, i am not part of the UK.

i am part of the USA. and like the UK, the USA allows living people on its stamps.

this still does not technically solve the issyew of how we might classify a coan, but i think the question has been rendered irrelevant.

p.s. reap finally woke up, pete. mwhahaha. yes, that means i have stamps on the way.
