This year marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who is remembered as ‘the last of the great 18th century artists’ and England’s greatest gardner. Royal Mail marks this on 16 August with a set of 8 stamps and a retail booklet including the 2 x 1st class stamps.
A write-up of the locations shown on the 8 stamps - including (at last) two 2nd class stamps and two at £1.05, which will please people writing to Europe and sending Postcrossing cards worldwide - is on our latest new webpage. Special postmarks associated with this stamp issue will be included in Royal Mail's Postmark Bulletin for 22 July and 5 August.

We will not be able to sell these booklets due to the temporary closure of our webshop. Booklets (both plain and cylinder) and pairs of self-adhesive stamps will be available when we reopen in November.
