Austen postage stamps

Emma depicted on the Royal Mail's new stamps

The Royal Mail is set to celebrate Jane Austen on a set of stamps in 2013.

The bicentenary of the first publication of Pride & Prejudice, Austen’s most famous novel, will be celebrated as part of a six-stamp set on sale from February 21. The set will also feature scenes from Austen’s other works.

There are also stamp issues in 2013 featuring the TV series Dr Who and London Underground.

Andrew Hammond, managing director of Royal Mail Stamps, said: “We had a fantastic programme last year across a variety of different topics and capped it off with our hugely popular [Olympic] gold medal stamps.

“That’s a unique act to follow but the 2013 programme explores some of Britain’s greatest achievements from the world of literature, industry, sport and modern society in a schedule that certainly contains something for everyone.”
