If you love Pink Floyd and indeed, posting letters, you might want to get your hands on these Pink Floyd postage stamps and special edition sets, which have just been unveiled by the Royal Mail.

There are 10 stamps, all produced to commemorate 50 years since the band came into being, mixing classic album covers like the ones you see here with imagery from the band’s live performances and the staging of The Wall show.

Want more? You can have more. If the idea of sticking The Piper at the Gates of Dawn isn’t enough for you, the Royal Mail also has a clutch of limited edition sets for the collector.

Like the stamps, which aren’t available until 7th July, the limited editions and first day covers can be ordered now. Those include stamps cancelled with a Grantchester handstamp, a dedicated Syd Barrett souvenir cover and a set of framed stamps.

You can check out all of those right now at the Royal Mail website and of course, you can get the single stamps at your local Post Office from that launch date.

    I’m not convinced that I want a “fist day covers” experience, thank you.
