The Royal Mail has announced the release of 12 special stamps featuring Sir Paul McCartney.
Eight of the stamps will represent eight of the most defining albums from his career, including first solo album McCartney and recent number one McCartney III, while the other four will depict him in the recording studio over the years.
"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," said David Gold of the Royal Mail.
"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. body check tags ::
