This stunning stamp sheetlet commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the sci-fi classic with a full set of stamps from the 2001: A Space Odyssey collection on a sheet encompassing a central label. Presented in a decorative wrap, this is a wonderful piece for any fan of this iconic movie.

This British-made movie was launched to UK Audiences in 1968, one year prior to the moon landing. Audiences were stunned by the special effects utilised and the large vision of author Arthur C. Clarke and filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.

In real Kubrickesque style, each of the '2001' stamps released by the Isle of Man Post Office includes a message, a secret code concealed to the naked eye.

The series of 8 stamps illustrates a few of the most renowned images from the movie: the 20p stamp reveals Stanley Kubrick in the middle of producing motion picture magic. On the 30p stamp, revered sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke whose narrative, 'The Sentinel', from which '2001' was adapted, is visualised on the set, standing in front of the pod.

Heather Downham who played among the space stewardesses who include on the 83p stamp, remembered hearing an intake of breath at the premier, so shocked were movie audiences at the representation of weightlessness in space.

The 52p stamp includes the docking scene at Space Station V, years prior to today's ISS. The 75p stamp has the monolith, a featureless yet frightening black structure that offers the time link in between past, future and present, that includes a lot to the stress in the movie.

The primary subject of pressure in '2001' is originated from the interaction in between the human characters and the expert system, HAL 9000. His all-seeing, all-hearing red 'eye', is included on the ₤2.01 stamp.

Another one of the defining images is the Star Child, included on the ₤1.40 stamp; is this the future of humankind? On the ₤1.93 stamp is astronaut and primary character Dr. Dave Bowman, played by star Kier Dullea.
