United Kingdom - 90th Birthday of HM Queen Elizabeth II : Prestige Stamp Book (2016)
In this stunning, 24-page Prestige Stamp Book, Robert Hardman discusses the glorious life and reign of Her Majesty The Queen. It includes all of the Special Stamps and the Miniature Sheet from the 90th birthday issue, together with a pane of Definitive stamps that is unique to this item.

Already the longest reigning UK monarch, she is also the oldest reigning monarch in the world, and 90 years is a significant landmark.  The six sheet stamps celebrate with three stamps focusing on her family life, and three honouring her official work for the country. Royal Mail has never issued a stamp featuring The Queen with her father, and this is remedied with the first stamp. An image of her with her children, the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne conveys her family life, while a stamp with the Duke of Edinburgh marks their long partnership. Three other stamps mark The Queen’s official duties: as Head of State for the opening of Parliament; as Head of the Commonwealth where she is depicted with Nelson Mandela; and on a state visit to New Zealand, to represent more than 100 state visits made worldwide by Her Majesty since her accession.
