My best favorite British stamps of this year, 2009 – Design Classics.  Simple and straight forward – with White background and often a face view.  Nostallgic – as Creative Review blog describes, and still are familiar landscape of London. Minis are everywhere, each school has 100 Polypropylene chairs and no. 9 Routemaster is still taking us to Royal Albert Hall.
