Fantastically Frightening Philately

dlo1Our annual Halloween exhibit showcases terrifying topicals with the likenesses of Alfred Hitchcock, Edgar Allen Poe, monsters, and more. You’ll visit particularly petrifying places with postmarks of Devil’s Tower, Skull Valley, and other ghastly haunts. Beware the Chamber of Philatelic Horrors, where the appearance of some appalling stamps might fill your heart with dread, and where the connection between a Victorian serial killer and the U.S. Post Office are explored. Don’t forget to visit the dead letter office, where a gaggle of ghosts deliver mail to their final resting place. And recoil in recoil in fear at the cats, skulls, and devils used on Civil War cachets.

Come join us for an exceptionally eerie experience… if you dare.

2014 Stamp design contest winner announced

jillian stachowski grand winner 2014 aThe winning design was created by Jillian Stachowski, a seven year old student at Gale Elementary in Tucson. Her clever and creative design pictures a horned lizard blowing out candles, represented by saguaros. In the background are beautiful purple mountains that surround Tucson. Her design was made into a custom U.S. postage stamp. Cachets were also created from other winning designs. Both are for sale. For more details, see our Education page.
