I'm not much of a stamp collector, but I have to say these particular stamps got my attention. Partly due to the subject matter (love original Star Trek) but mostly because of the handsome and creative designs. They put me in mind of those vintage 60's sci-fi paperbacks.
Here's what it says about them at the offical U.S. Postal website:
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the television premiere, the new Star Trek Forever stamps showcase four digital illustrations inspired by classic elements of the television program:
- the Starship Enterprise inside the outline of a Starfleet insignia against a gold background;
- the silhouette of a crewman in a transporter against a red background;
- the silhouette of the Enterprise from above against a green background; and,
- the Enterprise inside the outline of the Vulcan salute (Spock’s iconic hand gesture) against a blue background
I might actually have to pick these up. They are snazzy.
