Elton John British Stamp Collection Features Eight Classic Album Covers
Sir Elton John's half-century of contributions to music will be celebrated on an upcoming set of 12 UK postage stamps, including eight that honor the singer's classic albums. Among the records featured on the stamps are his 1972 breakthrough, Honky Chateau, as well as Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy and Made in England.
John is only the second individual solo music artist to be featured on a set of stamps from the Royal Mail, following a 2017 edition honoring David Bowie. Other stamps in the collection will feature images of John performing live throughout his five-decade career, from a 1973 show at the Hammersmith Odeon in London to a 2018 show at Madison Square Garden in New York.
