Same Thing, Big Difference

Posted on

expo

This little (1 x 2.375″, no glue on reverse) Cinderella stamp has one thing going for it: it promotes an Exposition that was taking place the same summer as the seminal International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris.  From its French title, we get the term Art Deco.

3, 698 miles apart, same thing, big difference in influence.  And we got Erté, which is not a bad thing (the name shows up frequently in the New York Times crossword puzzles).
