The usual 'what do you think'?

First thought - does the sailing one remind anyone of anything?

Second, my favourite is the fencing, but this is because of a bias on my part - I used to fence quite seriously. (I'm almost certain the weapon they're using is epee)

I do find some of the others a bit devoid of movement.

Third, what do you think of the sheet mentioned in the article?

The illustrations look messy to me. Here would have been a good time to use photographic images so we recognise the sport. And I'd like more Olympic stamps and fewer paralympic stamps ; that refelcts the interest. (Olympics makes a huge profit, paralympics make a huge losses; we can all hope to be champion athletes...)

I agree this is a time when photos make sense to capture movement and drama. How would you fit triathlon in, though? You'd need some kind of design solution.

Get Matthews to redo his 1986 sixtieth birthday stamps!

I liked the ...and this concludes the Olympic 2012 stamp set... comment or whatever it said in the Royal Mail bumph. As if we're really not getting anything else anymore ever on the 2012 Olympics. Somehow I find that hard to believe!
