The Beatles are to appear on a set of stamps featuring images of their most famous album covers.

The collection of six stamps includes covers of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Abbey Road, Revolver, Let It Be and With The Beatles.

The stamps will go on sale in January 2007 as a tribute to the band.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: "The Beatles special stamps promise to be a big hit with fans the world over when they go on sale."

He continued: "Royal Mail is featuring some 1st Class Beatles album covers to commemorate the UK band that stands for all that's great in popular culture."
