Land of the Giants

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.

  1. 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 (:
