The perfect holiday gift for that "hard-to-buy-for" loved one now
available in Chapters Indigo stores
OTTAWA, Nov. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Canada Post has issued the 38th edition of Collection Canada, a highly visual 90-page coffee-table book featuring every Canadian
stamp design issued this year. Each year, more than 25,000 copies are
sold worldwide, making it a five-time Canadian bestseller.
Popular and highly collectible, these annual yearbooks gather all of
Canada Post's definitive and commemorative stamp designs from the year
into a single, richly illustrated and beautifully designed hardcover
volume to celebrate another chapter in Canada's philatelic history.
"Stamps are works of art, and Collection Canada 2011 reflects that in proud detail, making it the perfect coffee-table
or showpiece book in any home," says Jim Phillips, Director of Stamp
Services. "There is something for everyone - a fairy-tale wedding,
heroes and stars, paintings and architecture, science and nature - all
of it a reflection of our vast, beautiful country."
Every year, collectors and other Canadians appreciate the diversity of
stamps that cover a range of fascinating people, places, events and
institutions. This wealth of Canadian philately, combined with the
talents of those involved in writing and designing the book, results in
evocative language, fascinating stories, striking imagery, modern-age
design and cutting-edge printing. That's what makes Collection Canada a perennial Canadian bestseller.
Collection Canada can be purchased at Canada Post retail outlets and this year, for the
first time, at Chapters Indigo stores across Canada. Copies can also be
ordered online at canadapost.ca/collecting.
