Since the Penny Black first burst on the scene in 1840, they have made and mirrored history as it happens - from the 'British Empire Exhibition' of 1924 to the Austerity Olympics of 1948, from the Coronation to the death of Diana, from the advent of computers to the new Millennium. Chris West is a stamp-obsessive. He has picked his favourites to tell hugely entertaining and idiosyncratic history. We learn about the Penny Lilac which united a nation in 1881- the controversial schoolboy-designed Edward VIII stamp of 1936- the day the Queen's head was nearly chopped off in 1966- the first non-white Briton to grace a stamp in 1982, and many more.
