Jane Austen Postage Stamps

From the Huffington Post UK:

A special set of stamps go on sale today featuring Jane Austen novels, including newly-commissioned artwork showing scenes from her books. All six published novels are included in the new stamps, which mark the 200th anniversary of Pride And Prejudice.

The Royal Mail also announced that letters posted in Chawton in Hampshire, where Austen spent her last years, and Steventon, near Basingstoke, where she was born, will have a special postmark for a week, featuring the Pride And Prejudice quote "Do anything rather than marry without affection."
