Imagine Peace Tower on New Icelandic Stamp

The Icelandic Postal Company released a new series of stamps on Thursday depicting the Imagine Peace Tower, which is dedicated to the memory of Beatle John Lennon.

The stamp, designed by Orn Smari Gislason, is printed in a traditional four-color offset format and then overprinted with phosphorus in silk screen which causes the picture to accumulate light and then glow in the dark.

When exposed to ultraviolet light, a picture of John Lennon appears on the stamp.

On the paper strips surrounding a set of ten stamps the words "Imagine Peace" are written in 24 languages.
