Don't Be Scared Of Stamps!
Those Universal Monsters really get around--especially when they were showcased on official United States postage stamps. One of the greatest (and most visible) honors ever accorded these iconic screen figures, the United States Postal Service released these spooky stamps in 1997. The USPS offered a complete set of the Classic Movie Monsters releases in this specially designed folder, in order to appeal to both stamp collectors (otherwise known as philatelists) and fans of the frightening film stars. Painted by artist Thomas Blackshear, who has painted a number of other US stamps, these particular stamps feature the creatures that everyone loves to fear.
