The Royal Mail announced it would be releasing a series of Agatha Christie stamps packed with “hidden secrets” to celebrate the Queen of Crime’s 126th birthday on Thursday.
The six stamps are devoted to the classic Christie mysteries. The one listed in the stamps are The Mysterious Affair at Styles, which Christie began writing 100 years ago at the age of 26, the Hercule Poirot mystery, Murder on the Orient Express.

Each of this designs includes microtext, UV ink and thermochromic ink. These clues can be revealed using either a magnifying glass, UV light or body heat. The Royal Mail said regarding the anniversary of the Queen of Mystery: “With more than two billion book sales worldwide, crime writer and playwright Agatha Christie has been outsold only by Shakespeare and the Bible,” “So it’s fitting that we mark not just the centenary of her writing her first crime novel, but also the 40th anniversary of her death with a stamp issue that’s full of intrigue.”

The series, was designed by Jim Sutherland and Neil Webb. It also includes the Miss Marple mysteries, the unforgettable The Body in the Library and A Murder Is Announced, along with the Poirot tale The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, and the story of murder and mayhem on an island off the Devon coast adapted by the BBC last Christmas, And Then There Were None.
Her grandson speaks to Royal Mail and adds: “The ingenuity of her mysteries is cleverly represented in these distinctive designs, with the use of cutting edge technology – a welcome alliance of the traditional and the modern – adding to the delight. I am certain that … mystery lovers will relish the puzzles that each stamp presents.”
We are all eager to see this stamps come to life!
