Landmark Buildings - stamp issue 13 July 2017

From Royal Mail publicity:
Architecture is always a very popular collecting theme and in this stamp issue we are celebrating excellence in contemporary architecture and engineering in the UK. In the past 20 years there has been a renaissance in new British architecture, particularly in buildings for public use or open to visitors.

Through online research our core customers rated modern landmark buildings as the 8th most popular subject out of 40 and new customers rated it even more popular. These buildings were chosen for both their high footfall and their architectural excellence.
