Agatha Christie Stamps with Clues

This is so cool. Thanks to Paul D. Marks for posting. Britain has released Postage Stamps embedded with hidden clues to honor Agatha Christie. Love that there are clues within the stamps. Mystery lovers can use UV light, body heat, or a magnifying glass to search for clues from each book that are embedded into the stamps using microtext and heat-sensitive and UV inks.

From Slate:
It’s been 100 years since Agatha Christie wrote her first detective novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles (published in 1920), giving life to Hercule Poirot. To mark the occasion, the U.K.’s Royal Mail has released a set of innovative stamps dedicated to six of her most famous works.

Designed by London-based Studio Sutherland in collaboration with British illustrator Neil Webb, the stamps are dedicated to key scenes and principal characters from Christie’s 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, and A Murder Is Announced.
