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 a critic said, and still most of them are forming familiar British landscape.  Every school has hundreds of Robin Day’s chairs and every household has a paperback from Penguin Books.
