The Chase has designed the Royal Mail’s 20th anniversary edition of its annual stamps yearbook, Royal Mail Special Stamps 20, which features work from the likes of Williams Murray Hamm, Una, Johnson Banks, Phelan Barker and Elmwood. Subjects range from the Secret of Life, celebrating the discovery of DNA by Crick and Watson, to pub signs via The Queen’s 2002 Jubilee and Fun Fruit & Veg. The book, written Fay Sweet, describes the context of the creative work and includes commemorative sets of each of the 12 designs produced this year. A run of 35 000 copies has been produced to ensure the yearbook becomes a collectable item. It is priced at £33.95 and available through Royal Mail branches, on-line at www.royalmail.com or by phoning 08457 641641.
