Sunday Stamps - Cartoons or Illustrations

Am I lucky to live in the United Kingdom and can use the stamps Royal Mail produce on letters & postcards I send?  

This year saw Royal Mail issue stamps celebrating DC Comics. I haven't been much of a comic reader, and haven't followed super hero movies.
Roayl Mail has also previously issued stamps about the Great Fire of London. I think I have only a couple of stamps from this issue left.
Then, there are book illustrations. I love Roald Dahl (Tales of the Unexpected, and the letters, Love from Boy, a collection of letters sent to his mother), but have not read many of his children's stories. 
Also illustrations for more grown-up books, but I haven't finished any of these books. I struggled to get half way through David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, way back in school (but no one from my class managed to finish it either back then). 


  1. Yes, you're lucky! :)
    I can consider myself lucky too, because I have got most of the stamps of this post on postcards and envelopes. I'm not a big fan of superheroes, but I am very fond of Roald Dahl stories, both for adults and children.

  2. Superheroes leave me cold, for some reason. I have the Jane Austen series (and all her books, which one day I may read. there have been so many good adaptations on tv). I also love that there is a series for the Great Fire of London.

  3. I liked those Fire of London ones, very inventive. Dickens invented so many great characters I wondered how they chose the ones they did.

  4. I must be from a different generation as I have never seen a book by Roald Dahl.
