The Royal Mail unveiled a set of six new stamps today depicting all of Jane Austen‘s published novels to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice.
All six, including this one shown outside the Jane Austen’s House Museum in Hampshire, are now on sale.

That is one big STAMP! 🙂
Maybe for an unusually big envelope 🙂
I love Pride n Prejudice – both movie n book!
Maybe the stamps will cause more people to read the books.
I love Jane Austen’s novels! Would be nice to have those stamps!
Maybe someone from Britain will send you a letter with those stamps.
Or you can order them at
