Royal Mail has revealed images of a set of 12 special stamps being to honour music legend Sir Paul McCartney.
The main stamp set features a selection of eight LPs which have defined the ex-Beatle’s career from his first solo album, McCartney, released in 1970, through to his most recent number one album, McCartney III, which was recorded and released during lockdown in 2020.
Royal Mail collaborated closely with the singer/songwriter on the collection, with the former Beatle having personal involvement in the images used and the wider product range created for the issue.
He is the most successful albums artist in UK official chart history and has been awarded more than 60 gold discs.
David Gold of Royal Mail said: “Paul McCartney remains a vital figure at the centre of rock and pop, an artist whose legacy is immense, but whose work continues to generate popular attention and critical acclaim.
“This dedicated stamp issue is a fitting tribute to one of the UK’s much loved and revered musical icons.”
The stamps go on sale on May 28.
