Designs have been revealed for the set of six stamps which will commemorate the work of Jane Austen on February 21.

Although the issue is timed to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride & Prejudice, it will illustrate scenes from all six of her published novels.

The two 1st class will show Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice, the 77p values Mansfield Park and Emma, and the two £1.28 top values Northanger Abbey and Persuasion.
