Royal Mail have revealed the designs for their ten Dinosaurs stamps, issued on 10 October.

The images on the stamps, produced by long-time dino-illustrator John Sibbick, are on white backgrounds and show each dinosaur roaring, swooping and swimming its way on to the stamp.

The stamps also feature unusual perforated edges, which see the dinosaurs break out of the stamp frame, in a similar way to other popular stamp issues from Royal Mail, such as the Beatles stamps of 2007.
