22 Jul 2013

Printed on trusecurity postage stamp paper, Canada Post is paying tribute to music's living legends and making history in the process with their latest release. Bands featuring on this commemorative stamp series include RUSH, The Tragically Hip, The Guess Who and Beau Dommage.

Collectively, the featured bands have sold tens of millions of records worldwide and achieved critical success that has earned them an array of awards.

Current members of each band collaborated with designer Louis Gagnon of Paprika to help create their stamps. The result is a set of four stamps that feature group shots of The Tragically Hip and Beau Dommage, the Starman logo from the back cover of RUSH's 2112 album and the infamous Guess Who logo.
