Polish postage stamps - FREE with poster!
Clown face with derby & Mona Lisa are the only two CYRK posters honored by the Republic of Poland by being issued as postage stamps.
Clown face with derby (1970) by Waldemar Swierzy became a postage stamp in 1992 and Mona Lisa (1970) by Maciej Urbaniec in 2002. This tribute to the popularity of these posters and their artists also recognizes the significance of the CYRK genre as the most highly-acclaimed and recognized posters of the golden age of the Polish School of Poster (1945-1989). (During this era, more than 300 different CYRK posters by more than 75 artists had been commissioned by the Polish government.)
Waldemar Swierzy (b.1931), with more than 2,500 posters, is also one of Poland's most prominent posterists. His varied style is innovative and he constantly tries unusual concepts, of which Clown face with derby (1970) is a prime example.
A FREE postage stamp will be included with a purchase of Clown face with derby &/or Mona Lisa (1970 printing only). A great conversation piece, fun souvenir & collectible.
