The lifetime achievements of five British women of the twentieth century are to be celebrated in a set of five stamps next month. The stamps are designed by Michael Nash Associates partner Stephanie Nash. ‘It is fitting that the leading lights of their generation have been designed by Stephanie Nash, one of today’s leading lights in design,’ says Rosena Robson, Royal Mail special stamps manager. The subjects – scientist Dorothy Hodgkin, ballerina Margot Fonteyn, sculptor Elizabeth Frink, author Daphne du Maurier and sports administrator Marea Hartman – are each pictured on their stamp alongside an object related to their achievements.
