Animated Israeli postage stamps

This Sunday, November 21st, the Israel Philatelic Service will issue a set of postage stamps to commemorate ASIFA International’s anniversary and ASIFA Israel’s 25th birthday. The set contains 15 stamps, each slightly different, creating a movement cycle (pictured below, poor image to discourage counterfeiters). They will also release a flip-book of the stamps (above) marking “250 years since the first flip-book”. If you’re interested in ordering/buying these stamps, or the flip-book, you can use the online Israel Post website. Both the flip-book and the stamps page cost approximately $6 (six dollars) US each.
