2018 Away in a Manger – Nativity Single Stamp
Date of Issue: November 2, 2018
Denomination: PERMANENT™ (P)
Printer: Colour Innovations
Postal Administration: Canada
The Nativity has inspired more creative interpretations than most other stories. For hundreds of years, artists have used the mediums and methods from their day to reveal their own vision of the Nativity.
This Canadian stamp released on November 2, 2018, was designed by Paprika from Montréal and illustrated by Daniel Robitaille. Together, they use simplistic but rich symbolism of traditional folk art to describe the key elements of Christmas: Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, their stable and makeshift crib, and the star of Bethlehem over the stable.
The warm red and gold colors chosen for the stamp art suggest a sense of family closeness and peace that the holiday season brings.
