Dorothy, an art studio based in Liverpool, UK, recently presented an intriguing new series of stamps inspired by literature and music. Each stamp contains artwork drawn from the particular book or music album alongside some basic info about the work.
There are 84 different stamps on the subject of books, divided into two collections. The first collection revolves around literary classics written between the 17th century and early 20th century, like Miguel de Cervantes’s Don Quixote, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and War and Peace by Tolstoy.
The second collection contains stamps inspired by modern books like Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, and Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude.
The music stamps have six collections, including two volumes of Alternative music albums. The first volume covers the period from 1984 to 1999 and includes Pixies’ Doolittle, Pulp’s Different Class, and Nirvana’s Nevermind.
The second volume covers the period from 2000 to 2018 and has stamps inspired by The Strokes’ Is This It, The White Stripes’ Elephant, and The National’s Alligator.
Four remaining music collections are dedicated to albums from music acts in the Electronic, Psychedelic, Post-Rock, and Post-Punk genre.
