Stamping Out Crime

On the CRIMINAL BRIEF weblog (December 11, 2008), Deborah Elliott-Upton tells us she . . .
. . . discovered that over two dozen countries issued postage stamps featuring fictional detectives, their creators, or as characters portrayed in movies. Edgar Allan Poe, Georges Simenon, Ngaio Marsh and G. K. Chesterton as well as Dick Tracy, Sherlock Holmes and Detective Conan have all been images chosen for postage stamps around the world.
If you're philatelic and mysteriophilic, the DETECTIVE FICTION ON STAMPS website is definitely for you.
