The city that dubs itself “The Entertainment Capital of the World” will host a first-day ceremony for five new United States stamps celebrating magic and illusion.
The U.S. Postal Service has announced the event will take place Aug. 7 in Las Vegas, Nev. Ceremony details, including a list of participants, have not been announced.
The pane of 20 forever stamps contains digital illustrations of “five classic tricks magicians use to amaze and delight audiences: a rabbit in a hat (production), a fortune teller using a crystal ball (prediction), a woman floating in the air (levitation), an empty bird cage (vanishing), and a bird emerging from a flower (transformation).”
Each design includes the inscription, “The Art of Magic.”
