Description

A new 32 domestic letter rate definitive depicts Queen Elizabeth II, Canada's head of state. The Queen Elizabeth design now in use first appeared on March 1, 1977. That was the year of the Silver Jubilee of her accession to the throne on February 6, 1952. The popular design will be reissued for the fifth time on May 24,1983. Such longevity is a tribute not only to the simplicity and grace of the design itself but also to the great esteem and affection which is felt in Canada for Queen Elizabeth and the royal family. Heather Cooper, the internationally known Toronto designer and artist, designed the Queen Elizabeth II definitive. The design is based on a bas-relief sculpture of the Queen produced specially for the postage stamp by Jaroslav Huta, a new Canadian who completed his studies in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and then came to Canada via Munich, West Germany. Huta, in turn, worked from a black and white photograph of the Queen taken by the British photographer Peter Grugeon.
