Great British Fashion Stamp Covers

We were recently asked by Bletchley Park to design a first day cover for a new set of stamps designed around Great British Fashion. The design was to have a 1940's theme related to fashion and to Bletchey Park itself. We took inspiration from the work of iconic fashion illustrator RenĂ© Gruau also working around this time, and created a glamourous wartime code breaker against a very British backdrop.

As well as creating the covers, we designed a stamp cancel (below).


The beautiful stamps shown here were designed by Johnson Banks.
