Peter Max Stamps


On this page you will first find pictures and information about stamps honoring Peter Max and his art. Then, further below you will see stamps currently available for purchase today.

As you will see from the dates, there has been a rush of Peter Max stamp issues recently.


1974 Expo Stamp

This 10 cent stamp from the 1974 World's Fair Expo says "Preserve the Environment" on it. The 1974 Expo was held in Spokane, Washington, and was the first World's Fair to have a specific theme. That theme was the environment.

The stamp features a man dressed in blue striding across the green earth. He is wearing bell bottom pants. Overhead, birds can be seen flying over the ocean.





1992 Earth Summit Stamps

This stamp shows flowers, ships in the water, and a general panorama with a rainbow.

In these stamps Peter Max shows the earth with its place in the cosmos, and another scene with flowers and a ship in the ocean.

This playful scene shows various individuals enjoying the environment.





1997 5-Year Earth Summit Stamps

This set of 32 cent stamps are from the 1997 5th year review of the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit. The stamp showing boats on the water refers to "Earth Summit". The stamp with the large sun peeking over the purple, snow capped mountain refers to Sommet Planete Terre". The third stamp, with trees and the same striding figure seen in the 1974 stamp refers to "Umweltgipfel".





1997 5-Year Anniversary Earth Summit Oceans Stamp

This special souvenir sheet for the 1997 Earth Summit 5-year review was designed by Peter Max. It refers to the world's oceans.





First Day Covers

Here are numerous First Day Covers (known as "FDC"). A First Day Cover is a card or envelope with a stamp issued on the first day the stamp has been sold. It is a "first edition" for stamps.

These cards or envelopes are valuable to collect because they also have a larger picture called a "cachet" (pronounced "ka-shay") on the left hand side. These are usually created by private companies which should have permission from Peter Max to add his illustrations to the card. A cachet is supposed to supplement the meaning of the stamp.
