Albums by , and are among those featured on a new series of commemorative U.K. postage stamps. Britain's Royal Mail has printed a set of 10 stamps featuring iconic album covers, and they've chosen the Stones' "", Blur's "" and "" by The Clash.

Coldplay, David Bowie and Led Zeppelin have also been given the unusual honour - and former Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is thrilled with the band's stamp for their 1971 album IV.

Covers by Mike Oldfield, New Order, and Primal Scream complete the iconic set of stamps.
