Rose Design has created a set of stamps to coincide with the 250th anniversary of the British Museum this year. The series, out last week, features images of objects taken from the museum’s collection, one from each continent and two from Europe. Alexander the Great features on the first class stamp, the Sutton Hoo helmet appears on the 38p edition and the 68p stamp shows an Easter Island figure. Graeme Montgomery photographed all the objects.
The new look was developed by Dragon Rouge and aims to bring together the nine councils that form the body.
The logo, a combination of the country’s heritage, will be shared by the Olympic and Paralympic Games for the first time.
According to the London-based designers, Rihanna’s eponymous book took two years to design.
