Canada Post unveiled their new Christopher Plummer (1929 – 2021) stamp today. Designer Steven Slipp was faced with the monumental job of distilling a 7 decade career into a single stamp. Using the skills of illustrator Spooky Pooka, they managed to create an image that incorporated some of Plummer’s most notable roles.
