The UK postal service is commemorating David Bowie with a set of postage stamps featuring images of six of his most iconic album covers. The set of 10 stamps, which go on sale on 14 March 2017, will celebrate four of the late musician's tours and six of his albums. The other four stamps will show images of Bowie performing live during the Ziggy Stardust tour in 1973, the 1978 Stage tour, the 1983 Serious Moonlight tour and the 2004 Reality tour. The release marks the first time Royal Mail has dedicated an entire stamp issue to an individual music artist or cultural figure. It coincides with the 50th anniversary of Bowie's first album. Earlier I wrote 2 other blogs about David Bowie: the direct links to Blog 01 and Blog 02 will follow soon.
