It is interesting to see this unusual comic strip style on our stamps - but they tell the story in an interesting way. I like the use of the London Streets dividing up the sections of each stamp, and the amazing detail. I had thought we might have a drawing of Samuel Pepys burying his Parmesan Cheese - but I think it is better that we are reminded of the hundreds who lost everything.But I do wish that they would include an ordinary 2nd class stamp in the Commemorative sets - I so rarely use any of the more expensive ones.
Does anyone else remember the "Look and Learn" children's magazine? The style of these illustrations reminds me of the historical stories told in those pages.
