Canada Post has unveiled a stamp featuring Canadian music icon Robbie Robertson, part of the third installment of the Canadian Recording Artists stamp series. Available June 30th, the Robertson stamp will share the spotlight with four other outstanding Canadian singer-songwriters; Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Bruce Cockburn, and Ginette Reno. More than one million of each stamp will be available at post offices across Canada.
Robertson's stamp features a photograph taken by David Jordan Williams in 1994 as part of the sessions for Robbie's music project "Music for the Native Americans."
The stamps for the whole series were designed by Winnipeg design firm Circle Design Inc. and feature monochromatic photos of each recording artist alongside their Order of Canada insignia.
