ICONIC: The Postage Stamps of Lance Wyman
By Niko Courtelis
Graphic designer Lance Wyman created commemorative postage stamps for some of the most historically significant events of the late twentieth century: Olympiads, the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the 1970 World Cup, the first manned landing on the moon, and the twenty-fifth anniversary of the United Nations.
Studying the entirety of Wyman’s philatelic work—forty-three stamps in all—graphic designer Niko Courtelis details how well they have withstood the test of time.
With comments throughout by Wyman himself, this book (co-published on the occasion of an exhibit of Wyman’s stamps) will reintroduce readers to a designer they might think they already know.
