Hat-Trick have created a set of 4 postage stamps to mark the start of the London 2012 Olympics. The stamps include iconic London landmarks merged with Olympic sports to celebrate both the sport and the landmarks of London. The stamps are released in the UK. The pictured athletes are all elite members of the GB teams so they are all due to compete. The designers had to make sure that they are not recognizable individually as it was important that these are not just GB specific, but rather about the sports themselves. However they wanted to make sure that the sports are represented properly by shooting real athletes in action. One of the trickiest was the fencing and tower bridge stamp. Check it out!
