Royal Mail today issue a set of stamps, designed by hat-trick, commemorating the Royal Shakespeare Company‘s 50th anniversary. The six stamps feature RSC actors in famous productions, along with a well known line from the play in question, hand written by Marion Deuchars

As well as the six stamps, hat-trick also designed a mini-sheet of four stamps which features  a miniature paper stage set created and built specially by illustrator Rebecca Sutherland and shot by John Ross. The stamps pay homage to the four stages in Stratford – the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Swan Theatre, The Courtyard Theatre and The Other Place.

Can anyone name all the actors featured?

The Cult of Crouwel

The Design Museum’s excellent Wim Crouwel show is evidence of the reverence afforded to the Dutch designer in the UK, but why is he held in such high regard? And why now?
