Royal Mail is honouring the work of puppeteer Gerry Anderson with a new set of special â€˜motion stampsâ€™ issued today. Anderson created the characters from cult TV programmes such as Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray. The stamps were created by GBH with a process that fused film-making, editing and post production techniques with graphic design,â€ say GBH. â€Sequences were meticulously trialled from the original master 35mm print at ITV, and the final frames were carefully selected, exported to HD quality, digitally re-mastered and then re-edited back into an all-new 36 frames sequence, for use in the complex micro-lenticular process.â€ The lenticular stamps are joined by a Royal Mail Special Stamp Issue of six landscape stamps featuring all of Gerry Andersonâ€™s Supermarionation TV shows from the 1960s: Supercar, Fireball XL5, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 Whatever you do, put the franking machine away buy some stamps this month!!!
