1813. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Royal Mail Celebrates The United Kingdom.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Royal Mail will issue 1 miniature sheet containing 4 different stamps on 26 January 2021 on the subject of ‘United Kingdom - a celebration’. It is either a masterpiece of design or the most misconceived issue for a long time. Clearly the issue is philatelic Marmite. And what’s it for? Is it Post-imperial? Post Covid? Post-Europe? Or just Post-post? Rating:- *.

  The miniature sheet was designed by hat-trick design and lithographed by International Security Printers and is perforated 14.5.


๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ Bangladesh Post issued a single stamp on 12 January 2021 to commemorate the 49th anniversary of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman becoming the prime minister of Bangladesh. This is a further issue in the present continuing series which is being released to commemorate the Birth Centenary of Sheikh Mujib. Rating:- **.


  1. That Royal Mail minisheet is what-were-they-thinking awful. As is increasingly the case with Royal Mail's stamps, it looks like the design team spent all of ten minutes brainstorming ideas, searching the internet for stock images, and dragging them into the design template. Lazy, uncreative, forgettable.
