Beatles stamps to be issued in UK

The Royal Mail has announced that it will be issuing six Beatles album covers as a set of special stamps to be released on January 9th 2007.

Albums "With The Beatles" and "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" will feature as first class stamps, "Abbey Road" and "Help!" will be 64p and "Revolver" and "Let It Be" will be on 72p stamps.

"Special stamps mark great moments, famous anniversaries and important cultural themes," said Julietta Edgar from Royal Mail. "They are miniature pieces of art and history rolled into one and this year's stamps promise more stunning images."

Other special stamp sets due out in 2007 include British Army uniforms, UK inventions which changed the world, the Queen's diamond wedding anniversary, and the Scout Association's centenary.
