Royal Mail is celebrating one of the nation’s best-loved children’s authors, Roald Dahl, with its first stamp issue of 2012. The presentation pack of six stamps celebrates six of Dahl’s most famous books that children and adults alike came to know and love, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Twits and Matilda. The stamps themselves recreate the magic of the Dahl books, using the beautiful illustrations of Quentin Blake.
For the launch, Royal Mail Stamps is running a competition on its Facebook page to win Roald Dahl’s Scrumdiddlyumptious Story Collection featuring seven of his best-loved books, a pop-up book of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and a Roald Dahl presentation pack.
The stamps are also available via the Royal Mail online and on the Royal Mail eBay store.
