Description

A GROUP OF ORIGINAL SKETCHES ON POSTAL COVERS, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY PAUL AND CHRIS CALLE, REPRESENTING EACH OF THE ASTRONAUTS TO WALK ON THE MOON

In 1994, Paul Calle and his son Chris Calle jointly designed two US stamps commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Apollo XI moon landing event. Father and son produced a 29 cent commemorative stamp as well as an Express Mail stamp.

Famously, Paul Calle designed the iconic First Man on the Moon Stamp in 1969. Chris Calle has designed more than 35 postage stamps for the United States, and hundreds more for various countries as well as the United Nations. The present sketches depict the following astronauts: Gene Cernan, Charlie Duke, Harrison Schmitt, John Young, Dave Scott, James Irwin, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, Alan Bean, Pete Conrad, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin.
