LAS VEGAS — Through captivating skill and mystique, magicians have been making people believe in magic for centuries. Now the wonder and excitement of magical illusions are captured on U.S. Postal Service Forever stamps.
The Art of Magic Forever stamps were dedicated today in a first-day-of-issue ceremony in Las Vegas at The Orleans Hotel and Casino.
The pane of 20 stamps features digital illustrations of five classic tricks magicians use to amaze and delight audiences. For those looking for additional magic, a lenticular souvenir sheet of three of the stamps is also available, featuring a digital illustration that shows a white rabbit actually popping out of a black top hat, a technique used for the first time on a U.S. postage stamp.
