Royal Mail announced that a set of 13 stamps will be issued next month as a tribute to the musical contribution of rock legends Queen.
Eight stamps will feature images of some of the band’s most popular and iconic album covers: Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, News of the World, The Game, Greatest Hits, The Works, and Innuendo.
Queen’s live performances are celebrated in a miniature sheet of additional stamps, with images from Wembley Stadium, 1986; Hyde Park, 1976; Hammersmith Odeon, 1975; and Budapest, 1986.
Also included in the miniature-sheet is the iconic shot taken at the group’s first-ever studio photoshoot in a Primrose Hill studio in 1974.
The full set of 13 stamps is available in a Presentation Pack for £16. The stamps and a range of collectible products are available now to pre-order from www.royalmail.com/queen & QueenOnline.com
The stamps will go on general sale beginning July 9, the Royal Mail said in a statement.
Queen lead guitarist Brian May said, “It’s hard to put into words what I feel when looking at these beautiful stamps.”
