This image is of a United States 1 cent postage stamp from 1935. The stamp pictures Yosemite National Park's famous "El Capitan." The rock's 3,593-foot granite face is a favorite place for rock climbers to test their skills.

The face of this canvas measures 36 x 23 inches (91.4 x 58.4 cm). It is from a series of 5 pieces in this size. There are ten different parks featured in this series from 1935, all of which have received my Vintage Expansion Treatment and will be listed here shortly. Smaller sizes are available, as well as even larger sizes. For example a 13 x 8 inch version is readily available for a cost of $39. It can be found here https://www.etsy.com/listing/115905370/yosemite-el-capitan-13-x-8-inch

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. 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.

Actual shipping costs for a piece this size are incalculable until a destination is determined - the amount quoted below is an estimate and refunds will be given for shipping overcharges.

Thank you.
