Stamps celebrate Kubrick’ s film
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.
