This stamp is monstrous. It dwarfs most of the envelopes I have and I love that. I’ll show it properly “in situ” in all its massive landscape-formatted goodness in a future post since I still have many of them to affix to letters in the months to come. The part of this design that I particularly love is the map depicted faintly in the background. The bodies of many who perished in that tragedy are buried in Halifax. That’s the Canadian link to the story.

If you missed the video I posted a few days ago of designer Dennis Page speaking about the creation of the two Titanic stamps, here it is again.

Near...far...wherever you are... be glad you weren't on the Titanic.
