#380 Stamps

I received a birthday card the other day and the postage stamp caught my eye. Looking a bit further I found that the Royal Mail in the UK has a selection of stamps marking the 50th anniversary of the Royal Shakespeare Company, designed by Marion Deuchars.

Excellent designs, in my opinion, the stamp inspired me to take an interest and *maybe* even reread Henry 5th (part 2) which I last looked at back in school in the English Lit. class.

But are postage stamps going the way of vinyl LP covers - small pieces of art that have been overtaken by the progress of pixels?
