  2001: A Space Odyssey Stamps [read more]
  Futuristic philately
  Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Isle of Man Post Office today announced the launch of a series of eight hi-tech stamps that celebrate half a century since the making of this iconic British film, rated one of the greatest films of all time.

The Isle of Man Post Office has worked with Warner Bros. and through them the Kubrick family and SKFA, to create a set of stamps that are respectful of the genre, the film and its makers, as well as the millions of fans in the UK and beyond. In true Kubrick style, each of the '2001' stamps contain hidden secrets, a message embedded for fans to find.

The special First Day and Commemorative Covers are a groundbreaking homage to the film and much of the collection is in strictly limited-edition numbers, highly prized by collectors and film fans.

Designed by London creative agency Glazier Design, who also designed the Stephen Hawking Gravitational Theory stamps, the series of eight stamps depict some of the most iconic imagery from the film; Kubrick himself, author Arthur C. Clarke from whose short story the film was adapted, the Monolith, Star Child, Dr. Dave Bowman and, of course, the HAL 9000, the errant AI.

The stamps have received Royal Approval and are available now at the link above.
