Canadian recording artist souvenir sheet 2009
Added by Alain Martineau
General Description : Souvenir sheet of 4 stamps
Gum Type: P.V.A.
Each star featured has made remarkable contributions to the Canadian music scene. International rock superstar Bryan Adams helped develop an infrastructure to propel other Canadians to the top of the charts. Renowned folklorist Stompin’ Tom Connors protested the policies he felt were hindering Canada’s artistic potential. A pioneer in French-Canadian rock, Robert Charlebois gave voice to and furthered the development of the chanson. And Acadian sensation Édith Butler promoted familiarity with and appreciation for her Acadian culture across Canada and around the world.
Like the first stamp issue celebrating Canadian singers and songwriters released in 2007, this set was designed by Winnipeg’s Circle Design Inc.
The stamps are square in format and feature monochromatic photos of each artist alongside their Order of Canada insignias. To reflect the glamour of these “living legends,” each is captured in the limelight. Peters explains, “We brought them all into the same ‘performance space’ by close-cutting them into the background, making it appear as though they’re standing in the spotlight.” The effect brings life to each performer. “It’s as though we’re watching them on stage,” adds Peters.
