Pioneers of Aviation - Otto Lillienthal & Wright Brothers stamp First Day Cover
Pioneers of Aviation - Otto Lillienthal & Wright Brothers stamp First Day Cover:
This great picture collage salutes that great pioneer of aviation - Otto Lillienthal who published the book "The Flight of Birds as the basis of Aviation" and made over 2000 experimental flights before his death in a crash on Aug. 9, 1896. The collage features the First Day Cover of the Wright Brothers stamp whose envelope has been dedicated to the efforts of Otto Lillienthal to pioneer flight. On the day a stamp is issued, it is only available in the city where it is issued and the Post Office certifies this by canceling the stamp “First Day of Issue” creating a very unique collectible. Overall, a great collectible for anyaviationbuff.
The size of this matted picture is 8" x 10" and will fit any 8" x 10" inch frame (a standard size).
I make all these collages by hand. As a history buff as well as a lover of old movies and all types of sports, the key to each picture is the research behind it. Deciding what movies should go with a particular star or what game or series would best reflect a certain sports hero is crucial to a successful collage. I then design each picture individually and lay out the design on the mat. Finally, I cut each mat based on that design and assemble the collage.
