Britian’s Royal Mail will be introducing a new series of stamps later this month, one of them with a depection of a Mini on it.

>From the distinctive lines of RJ Mitchell’s Spitfire fighter and the stylish chic of Mary Quant’s daring mini skirt to the calm of the Penguin Books jacket and the practicality of Robin Day’s Polypropylene chair.

>But there’s one brilliant design that remains close to millions of people’s hearts – the Mini. In 1959 the first Mini’s rolled off the production lines at the British Motor Corporation’s plants at Longbridge, Birmingham and Cowley in Oxford.
