A new set of stamps from Hungary celebrate the 85th Stamp Day festival. A surcharged souvenir sheet issued for the festival carries a small surcharge which is used to support stamp collecting activities across Hungary. The two stamps are arranged tete-beche on the souvenir sheet and the sheet has an Anti-Stokes layer, which emits light and sound when examined under an infra-red light.
The stamps feature real embroidery, with a rose motif, and a paprika motif, with paprika fragrance embedded into the stamp in microcapsules. The sheet also features items of religious art from the Kalocsa Archiepiscopal Treasury.
