The set follows a Royal Mail James Bond commemorative sheet from 2012, and features all James Bond actors in unique stamp designs.

The stamps take inspiration from six key James Bond films across the decades, with the designs a stylistic tribute to the opening titles from each film.

Royal Mail spokesperson Philip Parker said: “James Bond is a British icon, recognised throughout the world for decades. It’s fitting our new stamps celebrate the six Bonds with stylish and evocative designs.” 

There are also specially designed limited-edition handstamps for pre-ordered First Day Covers (FDC) and Stamp Souvenirs.

One handstamp image features the renowned quote; ‘We’ve been expecting you’, often associated with Bond and his enemies. The issuing location, Tallents House, is Royal Mail’s Edinburgh office where all Special Stamps are dispatched from.
