From the reference box # 66
#66 - Modern University Building UK stamps, September 1971. A really striking set of stamps designed by Nicholas Jenkins.
They each utilise large blocks of colour and simple, geometric illustrations to showcase four amazing 'modern' university buildings:
3p - Physical Sciences Building, Aberystwyth University College
5p - Faraday Building, University of Southampton
7 1/2p - Engineering Department, University of Leicester
9p - Hexagon Restaurant, University of Essex
Mine came on this lovely First Day Cover from Middlesex with the stamps images also printed on the envelope...
