It has been one hundred years since Agatha Christie wrote her first novel and to celebrate the Royal Mail have designed stamps in her honour. Now, I am not a stamp collector and would normally gloss over this type of news, but these are not any ordinary stamp.
These are very clever and designed by Jim Sutherland. Take a look at the stamps below. They are too a mystery and contain clues in microtext, UV ink and thermochromic ink. I like them so much that I am going to order a set and frame it. The artwork is brilliant and it makes want to read more Agatha Christie. The Special Stamps depict key scenes and principal characters from six iconic novels:
Murder on the Orient Express
The Mysterious Affair at Styles
The Body in the Library
And Then There Were None
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
A Murder is Announced
