This stamp, to be issued next month, commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
While most of the typefaces used are available in digital versions (like Playbill and DeVinne), the stamp was produced by Hatch Show Print in Memphis, and so the type and ornaments are all wood. Rob Roy Kelly’s book on wood type calls the face in line 2 “Gothic Tuscan”, and the one on line 3 “French Clarendon”.
The art director was Antonio Alcalá.
A 16" x 23" letterpress poster of this design is also available on the USPS website. (Gail Anderson will sign the first 1,000 of the run of 5,000 posters.)
