Designing a set of stamps to mark the centenary of The Magic Circle was one of our most challenging and enjoyable projects. Our brief was “Show us magic – and make the stamps magical”, so we began by researching magic and special printing techniques, such as disappearing ink.

We commissioned renowned illustrator George Hardie to capture the hand-drawn style we found in old conjuring books and professional writers to make the instructions clear and succinct. After working through numerous ideas, we settled on five magic tricks in miniature – including a highly-collectible Royal Mail first.
