Queen Elizabeth II on her Coronation Day 1953 by Sir Terence Cuneo

2000adonline:

Nobody has been able to lick Judge Dredd, but now everyone can as he is appearing on a stamp along with other favourites from British comics:

On March 20th the Royal Mail are to issue a set of commemorative stamps on the theme of British comics. Very nice looking designs too, each featuring a different cover with a head shot of a character related to that comic in the foreground.

The comics featured are: The Dandy (with Desperate Dan), The Beano (Dennis the Menace), Eagle (Dan Dare), Topper (Beryl the Peril), Tiger (Roy of the Rovers), Bunty (The Four Marys), Buster (Hugh McNeill version of Buster), Valiant (The Steel Claw), Twinkle (Twinkle), and 2000AD (Judge Dredd).

The Dredd art is from Cliff Robinson and the cover is from prog 23.

The Mail Art Of Riitta Ikonen

Collection pieces designed to be postal using creative and sometimes absurd materials:

In 2004 a holiday project at the University of Brighton titled ‘Location Vocation Vacation’ called for mail art. One post card per week was to be sent as a document of experiences to Margaret Huber, the then second year Illustration tutor.

Around a hundred and fifty A6 sized cards have since been sent (and received) from all over the world. Hair, fish, a sachet of white powder, a piece of broken record, mossy bark… all dutifully delivered by postal workers. Only five cards have never reached their destination, (a few of those due to very poor crocheting)

Margaret still receives mail at irregular intervals.

Many more examples of the artist’s post works can be found here.
