Pink Floyd were always a band who could be relied upon to deliver classic albums, and now they're about to deliver letters and packages too.

Royal Mail has announced plans for a set of special stamps to honour the legendary rock group, which will be released on 7 July.

The collection includes six of their most famous album covers: their 1967 debut The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1970's Atom Heart Mother, 1973's The Dark Side of the Moon, 1975's Wish You Were Here, 1977's Animals and their final record The Endless River from 2014. Meanwhile, a further four stamps celebrate the group's legendary live performances, featuring appearances at London's UFO Club, together with The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and the Division Bell tours.

You can pre-order the collection by clicking here, and check out the images below.
