About Stamp

These four stamps, the first in a series, honour discoverers of Canada who stand in the forefront of those who have risked everything to discover the unknown. In 1497 and 1498, John Cabot (Giovanni Caboto), a Genoese navigator in the service of England, searched for Asia in the northwest Atlantic. Although he failed to find Asia, he did help prove the existence of a previously unknown continent. Artist Frederick Hagan of Newmarket, Ontario, painted the four images. Through landscape, maps and other cultural objects, these stamps present a variety of moods, characters and experiences rather than a literal approach to the subjects. J.F. Britton of Oakville worked with the artist on developing the typography for the stamp designs.
