In a world dominated with coronavirus pandemic news it is always nice to hear about something that brings some levity. Rock band Queen has 13 new postage stamps. The set of stamps consist of Queen’s album covers and images from their live performances. You can purchase them from the Royal Mail website. Eight of the thirteen stamps depict the following records: Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, News of the World, The Game, The Greatest Hits, The Works, Innuendo. The other stamps are printed on a smaller sheet with the individual members on stage throughout the years. Although this is Queen’s commemoration Freddi Mercury was featured in a 1999 stamp as part of the Royal Mail’s Millennium series. Also, did you know that Freddie was a stamp collector during his childhood? Pretty cool!
