Paul McCartney to be honored with special stamps

Paul McCartney will be depicted in a set of stamps to be issued by Britain’s Royal Mail.

In a recent announcement, Royal Mail said the former Beatle will appear in a special set of 12 stamps.

Eight of the stamps will show images of the singer-songwriter's album covers.

 The other four feature the 18-time Grammy Award winner working on music.

"Paul McCartney remains a vital figure at the centre of rock and pop – an artist whose legacy is immense, but whose work continues to generate popular attention and critical acclaim," David Gold of Royal Mail said in a statement.

"This dedicated stamp issue is a fitting tribute to one of the UK’s much loved and revered musical icons."
