David Bowie Stamps to be Released in Honor of His 70th Birthday

In honor of his would-be 70th birthday, the Royal Mail in the UK will release 10 commemorative stamps celebrating David Bowie. The pop culture postage will feature imagery from throughout Bowie’s monumental career – everything from Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane to Heroes, Let’s Dance, Earthling, and Blackstar. 

The stamps will become available March 14, but can be pre-ordered at the Royal Mail’s website – however, customers outside the UK will have to go through a registration process. Worth it, though, to send your next letter with the beautiful Bowie staring up from your envelope. (Snail mail is suddenly cool again.)
