Peter Cushing isn’t the only horror star to be celebrated on a postage stamp


Peter Cushing Blogathon
Last month, the UK Post Office released a set of postage stamps titled “Great Britons” which included an image of horror favourite Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes in Hammer’s Hound of the Baskervilles (1959).

With Cushing’s 100th birthday this week, many bloggers have used his postage stamp to illustrate their articles.

And this got us thinking about the other fabulous times postage stamps have been released around the world celebrating horror stars.

This year is not the first time a Peter Cushing film has appeared on a British postage stamp.

  1. David — This is fascinating stuff. Postage stamps are a nice medium for showing what a society thinks is important. We already knew Peter Cushing was important, but it’s nice to see the postal authorities acknowledge it. Thank you for sharing.
