Enjoy the wit and wisdom of some of Canada’s best editorial cartoonists with this booklet of 10 Permanent™ domestic rate stamps.
The cartoonists include Serge Chapleau, Brian Gable, Bruce MacKinnon, Duncan Macpherson and Terry Mosher (AKA Aislin). Each stamp features a selected work by one of the five cartoonists that shows their personal drawing style and approach.
Editorial cartoonists express their personal opinions and perspectives through drawings that are often layered with nuance and satire. They offer a different way to tell a story or make a point using exaggeration, hyperbole and caricature. They provide witty, even biting, commentary on current events, people or social/political issues.
The five editorial cartoonists featured in this stamp issue have all won multiple National Newspaper Awards that have, since 1949, honoured Canadian editorial cartoonists who demonstrate “exceptional cartooning illustration” through the originality and clarity of their message, distinctive style and ability to entertain and inform.
