Dorothy Knapp First Day Cover

Recommended Posts

I "specialize" in first day covers from the Fairs/Expos of the 1960's for the most part.  Here is a very scarce (one of three known with only two in this color) hand drawn hand colored first day cover for the Seattle World's Fair of 1962.

Absolutely Bill.  Dorothy Knapp is one of the most recognizable and sought after first day cover artists and is a member of the First Day Cover Hall of Fame.  She is the subject of a recently published book on here covers and her career as a cachet painter.  I was happy to provide the image of this cover and the HemisFair cover, both of which are in my exhibits, to the author for inclusion in that book.
