This Royal Society stamp issue by Royal Mail marks 350 years of progress in science. Founded in 1660, the Society's Fellows include key figures involved in the growth of modern science. The split-design stamps feature the luminaries' portraits paired with dramatic and colorful 'brainstorming' imagery representing their ideas and achievements. The accompanying pack features background information and quotes for each of the Fellows featured, and a timeline of the world's oldest science academy.
