Inventive Britain.

A set of eight suitably inventive stamps chart Britain’s long history of imaginative leaps and far-reaching ingenuity. All the imagery, in one way or another, express the overarching idea that “brilliance is beautiful”. The stamps are appropriately organised in related pairs: the Colossus computer and the World Wide Web; cat’s eyes and fibre optics; stainless steel and carbon fibre; DNA and the i-limb. Although they are visual expressions of specific breakthroughs, they were art directed to collectively resemble small pieces of abstract art.
