Do people still send letters? We’re not sure, but it hasn’t stopped the Royal Mail issuing four limited edition stamps to celebrate the start of the Paralympic Games in London. The designs, which feature cyclist Jody Cundy, powerlifter Ali Jawad (whom we featured on these pages last week), track and field athlete Stefanie Reid, and wheelchair basketball player Abdi Jamad, were created by Pearce Marchbank, one of the UK’s foremost graphic designers, who began his career in the 1970s devising iconic covers for a certain London listings magazine. They’re released today, and we think you’ll agree that they’re quite fabulous. Congratulations Pearce! There’s nothing like basking in a tiny sliver of reflected glory…
