Friday, 16 September 2016 | Gareth
This fascinating collection includes some of Roger Dean’s most recognisable art work from album covers of artists consisting of Yes and Uriah Heep. The image on the 45p stamp entitled ‘Meeting Place’ was inspired by the Isle of Man and developed specifically for this collection and the Islands and Bridges exhibit at the Manx Museum in Douglas.
Roger Dean is globally renowned for his album cover designs, posters and books. More than sixty million copies of his images have been offered around the globe as posters, cards, calendars books and album covers. His work has actually been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide including the Royal Academy of Arts, the V&A, the Royal College of Art and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London and the New York Culture Center, USA.
These stamps are an event of an artist who has actually influenced and continues to influence generations of boys and women to become professional designers and artists. Whether a philatelic or a design enthusiast; there is something for everyone in this fascinating collection.
