Making Your Correspondence Stylish

The Associated Press reports a new set of postage stamps celebrates a century of British design icons — from the Mini car to the miniskirt.

The Royal Mail stamps feature 10 different 20th-century design classics. They include the red double-decker bus, the Concorde supersonic jet, the orange-and-white Penguin paperback and the compact Mini car.

Another shows the miniskirt designed by Mary Quant (shown above holding a blow-up of the stamp) that revolutionized fashion in the 1960s. Quant helped launch the stamps praising the Royal Mail for their selection.

UK's Liverpool Daily Post says, "Now even your correspondence can be stylish."

"Sending a letter has never been so chic," reports the PopSugar website.
