US Postal Service to produce five stamps inspired by “the Art of Magic” in 2018

December 18, 2017

Magic fans who still enjoy sending mail the old-fashioned way, take note: the United States Postal Service has unveiled their custom line of 2018 stamps, and five of them are inspired by the “art of magic”.

From the report on

The Postal Service celebrates the art of magic with this pane of 20 stamps featuring digital illustrations of five classic tricks magicians use to amaze and delight audiences: a rabbit in a hat (production), a fortune teller using a crystal ball (prediction), a woman floating in the air (levitation), an empty bird cage (vanishing), and a bird emerging from a flower (transformation).  

No word on issue date or other details just yet, but they should be available for postage by early next year. Other people and subjects honored by the upcoming USPS stamps include Lena Horne, Mister Rogers, Sally Ride, John Lennon, the Flag Act of 1918, World War 1, and more. You can see samples of each here.
