Stamp collectors and fans of Basil Spence behold: the Scottish Brutalist architect has been commemorated on a special Royal Mail postage stamp

His 1962 Coventry Cathedral is featured as part of the Britons of Distinction series, which also includes the work of Gothic Revivalist Augustus Pugin.

Six years ago, buildings by Norman Foster, Frank Gehry, Future Systems, Edward Cullinan and Sutherland Hussey featured in Royal Mail’s Modern Architecture series. Perhaps an Olympic stadium series would bring fresh names to the fold.
