Gloriumptiously collectable – The official Roald Dahl stamps

roald dahl stampsSix of Dahl’s most popular children’s stories feature on the latest set of stamps from the Royal Mail – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Twits and The Witches.

As many of Dahl’s best loved stories have been illustrated by Quentin Blake it made perfect sense to use his illustrations for these Stamps.

Royal Mail have produced a number of sets for collectors including a Roal Dahl Presentation Pack – Inside a specially commissioned new illustration by Quentin Blake shows aspects of Dahl’s life and is set in Dahl’s writing shed and features the BFG and Sophie, a model of an RAF plane, a scrabble board, an Oscar statuette, Matilda, Willy Wonka, Oompa-Loompas, Dahl’s customised chair and writing board, a bow tie representing his Bond screenplay, a globe representing his global appeal, a bar of chocolate to reflect his love of chocolate.

The Roald Dahl Prestige Stamp Book will also be of interest to collectors as it featuresa biography of Roald Dahl by Donald Sturrock and four unique panes of stamps unavailable anywhere else.
