The 21st Royal Mail special Stamps Yearbook, designed by GBH, launches this week. The 64-page book showcases this year’s Special Stamp issues, including works by Zafar and Barbara Baran for the Royal Horticultural Society’s 200th anniversary, and Atelier Works’ Crimean War Stamps featuring Robert Howlett’s war portraits (spread pictured). This year’s book, the result of a six-month collaboration between GBH and Royal Mail, includes several new elements. Written by design writer Fay Sweet, the yearbook also features specially commissioned imagery.
