“Magic can inspire, enlighten, and unite as a rare and valuable art form, so I’m happy to be part of the unveiling of this very special collection,” added Emmy award winning Illusionist David Copperfield who was also onstage to début the stamps.
Illusions can be broken down into several major categories, including production, mental phenomena, defiance of natural laws, vanishing, and transformation. The original sheet of stamps issuance featured these exploits with classic representations: a rabbit in a top hat (production), a fortune teller using a crystal ball (prediction), a woman floating in air (levitation), an empty bird cage (vanishing), and a bird emerging from a flower (transformation). While these full sheets are no longer avaible you can have this small souviner sheet of Three.
