The Stamps That Fell To Earth
Royal Mail / 14 March 2017
In homage to Bowie’s immortal role in Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth, 52 First Day Covers, featuring a full set of album cover stamps, were launched into space. Fans were given the chance win one of the limited edition First Day Covers by guessing where ‘the stamps that fell to earth’ landed.
The stamps were postmarked with a special edition red handstamp of the iconic thunderbolt from the cover of Bowie’s Aladdin Sane.
