Special Stamps Yearbook 2018
Royal Mail

Who…

The Royal Mail Yearbook is the jewel in the crown of stamp collectors’ products each year. A 64 page casebound limited edition book which features each special stamp edition of that year. Every stamp release gets its own chapter written by an expert on the given subject – resulting in an in-depth background narrative for the stamps.

What…

We were commissioned to design the tome for 2018 – as a book that’s been tackled in the past by the great and good of the UK design scene, we were keen to do something a little different. Traditionally the stamps are tipped into the last page of each chapter and sit alongside a design story. But we turned that tradition on its head; putting the stamps on the first page of each chapter to give them the heroic positioning they deserve. Each set of stamps is then framed with an appropriate typographic treatment that brings the issue title to life on the page.
