A set of special stamps dedicated to musician David Bowie is set to be released in a Royal Mail first.

It is the only time an entire issue has been created for one artist.

The 10 stamps, including images of famous album covers Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane, will go on sale on March 14.

Four of the stamps will show Bowie in action live on tour, ranging from his Ziggy Stardust tour of 1972 to his 2004 Reality Tour.

Philip Parker of Royal Mail said: "For five decades David Bowie was at the forefront of contemporary culture, and has influenced successive generations of musicians, artists, designers and writers.

"Royal Mail's stamp issue celebrates this unique figure and some of his many celebrated personas."

The stamps are available to pre-order here. Prices start from £1.52.
