#3 Imagine Peace Tower on New Icelandic Stampipstampwhite

The Icelandic Postal Company has released a new series of stamps in October 2008 depicting the Imagine Peace Tower, which is dedicated to the memory of Beatle John Lennon. The stamp is printed in a traditional offset format and then overprinted with phosphorus in silk screen which causes the picture to accumulate light and then glow in the dark. When exposed to ultraviolet light, a picture of John Lennon appears on the stamp.
