Circus posters a big hit with Post Horn readers
In the December issue of the Philosateleian Post Horn, I asked readers to name their favorite United States stamp of 2014. The most popular issue? Circus posters!
“Most of my friends would be shocked since I am a huge comic book collector and I was at Comicon for the Batman release,” says Isaac K., “but my vote goes to the circus posters.”
Linda W. agrees. “I’ve had so much fun using the circus theme for my mail art envies, and the look was perfect when I’d use one of the circus postage stamps,” she writes.
My personal favorite? As a landscapes collector, the Hudson River School issue gets my vote, although I have to concede that those stamps would have been more impressive in a larger format like the size used for the Civil War stamps.
