Pink Floyd First Day Cover Royal Mail
Issued July 7, 2016, this official First Day Cover from Royal Mail features all six Pink Floyd stamps showcasing artwork from some of the Floyd's most iconic albums: 1967's The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (their first album and Syd Barrett's haunting masterpiece), 1970's Atom Heart Mother, 1974's The Dark Side of the Moon, 1975's Wish You Were Here, 1977's Animals and 2014's The Endless River (the band's final album).
The stamps are certified as a limited edition by the important First Day of Issue postmark, shaped to evoke the timeless Dark Side of the Moon prism. An authoritative information card is enclosed in the Cover, which also shows the famous pig from Animals flying over Battersea Power Station. This exclusive card explores the work of the graphic design partnership of Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell, who were friends of Pink Floyd back in Cambridge and began contributing to their visuals in 1968.
