Subplot Design was commissioned by Canada Post to create the religious holiday stamp for 2019.
The Christmas issue celebrates the journey of the Magi, who are said to have followed a brilliant star to Bethlehem.The stamp is a simple two-colour design. The look is echoed on the Official First Day Cover, which features the shepherds from the Nativity story in the Gospel of Luke. The cover’s cancel location – King City, Ontario – is an allusion to the Magi, who are also known as the Three Kings or Wise Men.
In addition to the stamp, Subplot designed a booklet and an OFDC.
