Jane Austen Stamps

 The new Royal Mail First Day Covers are dedicated to Jane Austen, who lived between 1775-1817 in the quiet Hampshire countryside. She wrote six of the most important novels in the English language, even more popular now than when they were first published.

Her most famous work include the worldwide famous story, “Pride and Prejudice”, followed by “Sense and Sensibility”, “Mansfield Park”, “Emma”, “Northanger Abbey” and “Persuasion”. It is refreshing to see that literature and books are remembered and appreciated, especially today, where the digital world is playing a protagonistical role in daily life.
