Mushrooms 38¢ Series

© Canada Post Corporation {1989}. Reproduced with Permission

These stamps highlight Canada Post’s ongoing desire to showcase Canadian nature (nature being a strong theme in Canadian creative activity – nature is Canadian design’s muse). This series was issued to celebrate both the Mycological Society of America, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences whose conventions were being held in Toronto this year.  Montreal graphic designer Ernst Roch rendered these four mushrooms in stylized gouache paintings and titled them simply by their Latin names, the Spindle Coral, Cinnabar Chanterelle, Admirable Boletus, and Common Morel.
