The Let's Dance rocker passed away in January, 2016 following a battle with cancer. Bosses at the Royal Mail have now decided to pay tribute to the late musician by releasing a series of 10 stamps.

According to Royal Mail representatives, it marks the first time the company has dedicated an entire issue to an individual music artist.

"For five decades David Bowie was at the forefront of contemporary culture, and has influenced successive generations of musicians, artists, designers and writers," Philip Parker of Royal Mail said to the Press Association. "Royal Mail's stamp issue celebrates this unique figure and some of his many celebrated personas."

The 10 stamps include images of album covers ranging from 1971's Hunky Dory through to Aladdin Sane, Heroes, Let's Dance, Earthling and his last album Blackstar, which was released two days before he died, as well as pictures of him performing onstage, including during his Ziggy Stardust Tour in 1972 and the 2004 A Reality Tour.

The series will go on sale in the U.K. from 14 March (17).
