Stamps cel­e­brate Kubrick’s film

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

A se­ries of eight commemorative stamps have been re­leased to cel­e­brate the 50th an­niver­sary of Stan­ley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Each of the stamps, launched by the Isle of Man post of­fice, con­tains a hid­den mes­sage for fans of the film to find. They in­cor­po­rate orig­i­nal stills taken from the film, be­hind-the-scenes images and ty­pog­ra­phy in­spired by orig­i­nal graph­ics that ap­pear in the block­buster.

One fea­tures Kubrick him­self, while another shows author Arthur C Clarke from whose short story the film was adapted.
