"Dracula Goes Postal"
« on: May 07, 2008, 08:19:52 PM »


   The Royal Mail in Britain will be issuing stamps with Christopher Lee  as "Dracula" on them in honor of Hammer Films next month. They've already done a set of James Bond Stamps.

I wonder if they'll do any collector's sets for Hammer Stamps like the US did for Universal Monsters.

   I'm sure they do. The Royal Mail does some really nice sets of stamps for first day issue and most likely have a homepage where you could find out more.

They'd be more interesting if they had original art (like the US Uni stamps), instead of just being repros of the Quad posters.
