Jimmy Page Launches UK Album Stamp Set

Jimmy Page Launches UK Album Stamp Set
by Paul Cashmere - January 8 2010

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has launched a classic album stamp set in the UK featuring Led Zeppelin IV.

The 10 stamp set also includes Pink Floyd ‘The Division Bell’. The Clash ‘London Calling, Rolling Stones ‘Let It Bleed’, David Bowie ‘Ziggy Stardust’ as well as covers from Primal Scream, Blur, Coldplay, Mike Oldfield and New Order.

The UK Royal Mail researched thousands of covers before deciding on the top 10.

Plant spoke at the launch saying "Almost 40 years after the album came out, nobody knows the old man who featured on the cover, nor the artist who painted him. That sort of sums up what we wanted to achieve with the album cover, which has remained both anonymous and enigmatic at the same time."

(I think we in the States would love to have some stamps like those made, how cool is that!)
