Has anyone noticed that all the stamp illustrations are shaped like old TV sets?
The Land of the Giants (1968-1970): Set in the future (1983), the crew and passengers of a sub-orbital commercial flight from New York to London encounter a strange space storm and crash-land on a mysterious Earth-like planet where everything is 12 x normal size.
The stamp design, poster and text are from one of my favourite student projects. Each stamp depicts an iconic science fiction TV series from the 1960s. For a recap on the project, click here.

Sounds like they trash-land 🙂
Yes! I did notice the shape of the stamp illustrations! Nice touch!
I so remember this show. It and Lost in Space is embedded into my long term memory. Don and Robot and Will and Penny and Doctor Zachary Smith…..
It’s funny you should mention Lost in Space… I’ll be posting that stamp next week : )
“Warning, Warning” Robot said… LOL. I look forward to seeing it. Have a great weekend!
My little brother loved Land of the Giants, I always found it rather scary!
I used to think the special effects were astonishing… of course, this was pre-George Lucas/Industrial Light and Magic… and I really liked the costumes/uniforms and colour palette… all a bit cheesy, now (:
