This United States stamp from 1962 commemorates Project Mercury which was the US's first launch of a man into space on February 20th, 1962. Astronaut Lt. Col. John H Glenn Jr. became the first American to orbit the Earth in the Friendship 7 Capsule. 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 8 x 13 inches (20.3 x 33 cm). It is a sample from a series of 20 pieces in this size. Larger sizes are available, 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. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang.

Thank you.
