E. F. Higgins III Birthday Commemorative


Cascadia Artpost honored the birthday of E.F. Higgins III, long-time creator of artistamps, by releasing a multicolored sheet displaying the silhouette of a "wingnut." Higgins' birthday on 10 November coincided with the all-day event AARPEX (Artistamp Artists Reunion & Philatelic Exposition) held in Seattle, Washington USA. Cascadia Artpost presented Higgins with a framed sheet of the birthday artistamps at a dinner with AARPEX participants that evening.  Higgins has used the wingnut as an icon for his Doo Da Postage Works. Making hundreds of stamps since the 1970's, Higgins lives in New York City with summer stints in Elberta, Michigan. He can be found on the internet at http://efhigginsiii.com/index.html .
