Royal Mail have just revealed a set of 10 NEW James Bond stamps celebrating the release of the record-breaking 25th Bond film – No Time to Die, this Spring.
The stamp issue pays tribute to all 6 iconic Bonds and their contribution to the character at the heart of British identity, as well as four of Q-Branch’s most sophisticated gadgets and is due to be released on 17th March 2020.
Let’s take a look…
From Connery to Craig, the stamps feature all six portrayals on 007 taken from arguably their most legendary films, set against complex designs reminiscent of the opening sequence from each film in brilliant colour. The set includes:
- Daniel Craig as James Bond in Casino Royale
- Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Goldeneye
- Timothy Dalton as James Bond in The Living Daylights
- Roger Moore as James Bond in Live and Let Die
- George Lazenby as James Bond in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service
- Sean Connery as James Bond in Goldfinger
Plus, the set pays homage to the Lotus Esprit Submarine, the Bell-Textron Jet Pack, Little Nellie and Bond’s great love; the DB5.
Uniquely and as you would expect from Q-Branch, these stamps are not all they seem… under UV light, the detailed specs of each gadget will become clear, although hidden to the naked eye.
