About Stamp

Tales of imaginary and mythical creatures exist world wide, and Canada is not without its own stories of legendary beasts. This year, Canada Post Corporation begins a new series of commemorative stamps recognizing Canadian folklore. The first set of four se tenant stamps depicts the "loup-garou" (Werewolf), the Ogopogo, the Sasquatch and the Kraken in the environments where they are rumoured to exist. Designer Ralph Tibbles teamed up with illustrators Allan Cormack and Deborah Drew-Brook, all of Toronto, to create these colourful stamps. The stamps feature fanciful illustrations, soft edges and decorative borders, creating a fairy tale look.
