Jane Austen Stamps - 3 Sets Available

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's novel Pride And Prejudice, the Royal Mail has just issued a set of stamps with newly commissioned artwork by Angela Barrett. The stamps are absolutely charming and come in a special presentation pack which includes historical details. Each stamp depicts a scene from one of her 6 novels. Two first-class stamps have illustrations from Pride And Prejudice and Sense And Sensibility; images from Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion make up the six-stamp set. I am sorry these have all gone now.
