Guernsey 1995 Europa Peace and Freedom Autostereogram 3-D Stamps 

Issue date 09 May 1995

Stereograms are 3D images hidden within another picture. In order to view the 3-D images, simply stare at the picture until the image starts to take shape. 

Guernsey Post issued a set of 2 stamps featuring design of a dove, a universal symbol of peace, one with a green background 25p stamp, and a blue background 30p stamp.

Designed by Keith Bassford, the Autostereogram (a hidden image seen by crossing one's eyes in the correct way) was created by David Burder (UK) and Bob Mannle (USA).

The hidden images are large versions of the doves as featured on the patterns i.e. on the 25p stamp the bird is standing, face to your right, while on the 30p stamp it is flying to the left.
