Canada:Horror Stamps

\"canadaCanada Post releases a set of five eerily beautiful stamps  on 13th June 2014.that cater to the country’s spectral inclinations.  illustrated by Sam Weber who grew up in Deep River, Ontario, the stamps are uncanny portraits of haunted sites around Canada, from the phantom train of the Saskatchewan River Valley to the ghost bride of Alberta. Creepier still is the limited edition coin of the latter, which uses lenticular printing to make her phantom eyes appear to open and close.Canada Post plans more themed stamps to capitalize on its ghostly heritage. These are just the first in a three-year series.
