About this Item

This American artist and photographer collaborated with reknowned photographer Laszlo Moholy-Nagy on a series of photograms in the 1930s before becoming a long-time Illinois State University art professor; in 1968 he won the competition for the U.S. stamp honoring the Illinois sesquicentennial. Signed First Day Cover, 6½" X 3½", cancelled in Shawneetown, Illinois on 1968 February 12 and with "First Day of Issue" boldly stamped. Single 6-cent "Illinois 1818 1968" stamp at upper right. Fine. At lower left, the artist signs and inscribes it handsomely in blue fountain pen: "for Paul Johnston / 2/28/68 / George Barford." Small portion of original transmittal envelope also present. A perfect example of this exceptional stamp, perfectly inscribed and signed by its creator. Bookseller Inventory # 25191
