Norvic Philatelics announces a new issue by the Royal Mail, featuring depictions of mythical creatures by none other than Dave McKean. This set features: a unicorn, a mermaid (legends about which are very common around the UK coast and the northern isles of Scotland), a giant (inspired by Finn McCool associated with the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland), the fairy queen (in a chariot pulled by birds), a pixie (which feature in Cornish folklore), and a dragon (emblem of Wales).
The sad part, of course, is that Dave McKean is introduced as “who worked on the Harry Potter movies”. And Andy Warhol was a window dresser.
