Released to commemorate the upcoming London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this limited-edition stamp set (created in collaboration with the Isle of Man Post Office) is Paul Smith at his most graphic, colourful and optimistic best. The starting point for the design was inspired by his close friend and Isle of Man native, Mark Cavendish – who also happens to be an Olympic cyclist. The group of seven stamps can be bought from Paul Smith’s online shop, www.paulsmith.co.uk, ranging from a mini-sheet of stamps to a beautiful hardback collector’s book (for £50). As much as we’ve enjoyed having this eye-candy in the office, we’re going to part with our mini set as a token of love for you.
IDEAS for display: 1. Pinned onto a stamp-inspired mood board. 2. Framed in white wood and hung in your home office. 3. Scanned and printed onto fabric to be made into cool scatter cushions. 4. Have then scanned, blown up to A3 poster size at a print shop and block mounted.
