A Stamp of Authority

The Royal Mail issued six new stamps today featuring British Cathedrals, and there we are on the 72p stamp. According to the accompanying press release, the designers had great difficulty in chosing their six; they sought buildings representing different styles, as well as different parts of the country.

The launch took place - somewhat confusingly - at St Paul's Cathedral - to mark the impending 300th anniversary of its completion.
