Royal Mail announces James Bond stamps

Royal Mail to issue stamps celebrating James Bond films in March.

Each actor who has played 007 in Eon’s long running series is represented. All actors but Sean Connery are represented by their first movie, who instead is represented by Goldfinger, probably the most iconic of the films.

Four more stamps represent some of Q-Branch’s most iconic gadgets.

Eon Productions announced the stamps on the official 007 website:

Royal Mail has revealed images of 10 new stamps being issued to celebrate the James Bond film franchise and the release of the 25th Bond film, No Time To Die.

The stamps take inspiration from six key James Bond films across the decades, with the designs a stylistic tribute to the opening titles from each film.

James Bond is depicted in the following films: Casino Royale (Daniel Craig, 2006); GoldenEye (Pierce Brosnan, 1995); The Living Daylights (Timothy Dalton, 1987); Live And Let Die (Roger Moore, 1973); On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (George Lazenby, 1969); and Goldfinger (Sean Connery, 1964). A further four stamps celebrate some of Q Branch’s iconic vehicles and the films they appear in: the Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Little Nellie, the autogyro from You Only Live Twice (1967); the Bell-Textron Jet Pack from Thunderball (1965); and the Aston Martin DB5, as seen in Skyfall (2012).

The stamps are available for pre-order from the Royal Mail website. They’ll be available on general sale from Tuesday 17 March.
