About Stamp

Canada Post Corporation is issuing four se tenant commemorative stamps featuring four mushrooms: Admirable Boletus, Common Morel; Cinnabar Chanterelle; and Spindle Coral all of which can be found in Canada. These stamps indicate Canada Post Corporation's continued commitment to nature themes. These stamps are issued in conjunction with conventions being held in Toronto this summer, by both the Mycological Society of America, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences. A Thematic Stamp Pack will also be available. Montreal graphic designer Ernst Roch rendered these four mushrooms in stylized gouache paintings. They're seen against plain but rich coloured backgrounds and identified by their species names in Latin. The designs are representative of Roch's finely detailed and precise work.
