A Mythical Opportunity for Stamp Collectors

Geek Culture


There is a new line of postage stamps that is due out this summer in the United Kingdom, portraying mythical creatures that are famous nationally and regionally. The set includes a unicorn, mermaid, giant, fairy queen, pixie and dragon. The images are drawn by fantasy artist Dave McKean, who has worked on the Harry Potter movies and is a well known comic book and graphic novel artist. He has also collaborated with Neil Gaiman on a variety of projects. The stamps will be available June 16.
