A few months ago, the U.K.’s Royal Mail released a set of stamps inspired by the works of Agatha Christie, one of the greatest mystery writers of all time, in honor of the 100th anniversary of her first detective story – The Mysterious Affair at Styles, which introduced Hercule Poirot, the famous fictional Belgian detective. But these are no ordinary stamps.
