Calle Designs Show Cachet

CCalle-Moon-Landing-Americover

The theme of Americover 2019, to be held July 26-28 in St. Louis, Missouri, is Moon Landing 50th Anniversary.

It’s only fitting that the show cachet is original artwork by Chris Calle. The Calle name is synonymous with art depicting the Apollo moon missions. Paul Calle, Chris’s father, designed the 10¢ 1969 airmail stamp celebrating the Apollo 11 moon mission (Scott C76). Chris designed the 1989 20th anniversary stamp (Scott 2419), and Paul and Chris teamed up to design the 1994 25th anniversary stamps (Scott 2841 and 2842).

Covers will be available at the show, with three different daily postmarks. A fourth postmark will also be available for the dedication of the new Moon Landing stamps. (See blog post below for postmark designs.) A set of four show covers will be $10.
