On March 23, letter-writers, collectors and art aficionados can share a piece of the most expensive book in the world... for as little as 50 cents. In March 2000, a copy of John James Audubon's Birds of America fetched $8.8 million at Christie's Auction House, the highest amount of money ever paid for a book. Canada Post is proud to issue five stamps featuring images from Birds of America that commemorate the presence of the wildlife artist John James Audubon in Canada almost 175 years ago.
