This hand stretched canvas print is of a United States postage stamp from 1969 commemorating the Apollo 8 Mission of December 1968 which put the first men into orbit around the moon. This popular image of the Earth was taken on this trip. April 12th, 2011 marked the 50th anniversary of man in space. And the 30th anniversary of the first space shuttle mission. See www.yurisnight.net for more information on this international holiday.

The face of this canvas measures 13 x 8 inches (33 x 20 cm). It is a sample from a series of 20 pieces in this size. Larger sizes are available, including a version that is 37 x 22 inches (94 x 56 cm), should you should be able to find here; http://www.etsy.com/listing/71989081/37-x-22-inch-canvas-of-1969-apollo-8, if you don't see it among my other Etsy listings please inquire.

I wanted to enjoy stamp artwork without a magnifying glass, without trapping these great little pieces of art in rarely seen binders. I started to blow them up and thought of Past Postage. Vintage postage stamps, meticulously scanned, cleaned, enlarged and printed on a premium archival canvas using professional equipment. The canvas is given a protective UV coating and stretched and stapled over handmade wooden frames of kiln dried poplar. Smaller pieces like this one are stretched over a half inch thick piece of high quality birch ply. The perforations of the stamps are gallery wrapped unto the sides of the frame, making additional framing unnecessary. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang. This is all done under one roof by one person.

Thank you for visiting - and if you like this piece I have many more in my store.
