Anniversary marked for sci-fi 'masterpiece'

50 years since Kubrick's classic

Collectors and film fans may be excited by the release of a limited-edition stamp series.

Marking 50 years since 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Isle of Man Post Office has styled a set of eight stamps for the anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi epic.

The latest in the Post Office's celebration of space is a joint-production, involving London-based Glazier Design, Warner Brothers and the Kubrick family.

The stamps feature iconic scenes from the film, each said to contain a hidden message only to be seen by microscope.
