On 30 April 2014 in honor of International Jazz Day, The United Nations Postal Administration will issue the following postage stamps. The denominations are: US. 49¢; F.s. 1,00, and € 0,70.
This was a wonderful project to work on. I approached it as a collage solution where each stamp is a collage onto itself and in tandem with the others make one larger piece of art. I was inspired by the abstraction that is Jazz; along the way, I listened to old favorites: Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Duke Ellington and random tunes from the 20's and 30's.
