Rabbit out of Hat / 手品うさぎ

‘Centenary of the Magic Circle’
design: G. Hardie and Tatham Design

I met a Japanese magician this summer, who told me about the Magic Circle, where he performed sometime ago.  I remembered the story now, because I found this set of stamps, which are celebrating the Magic Circle’s 100 years.

Following their tradition with a top hat and a tailcoat, these pop designs recreate nice visual illusions within small stamps – pity you cannot rub digital images, but I feature one which I scratched with a coin.

I have ‘head’ of the coin, not ‘tail’.

The year of the rabbit is ceasing in four days.  I have this feeling that a year gets shorter and shorter – is it proving the fact that I am getting older faster!?
