Broadside on brown paper in two colors (8 x 6 inches) printed as a "first day of issue [stamp] keepsake" for the occasion of the E A Poe Bicentennial in Richmond, VA, 16 January 2009. One of 100 copies, but here included are three versions, the first on gray paper misstates the occasion as "First Day Cover", the second on brown paper, also in error, as" first issue". Dana Gioia a stamp collector himself was then outgoing NEA Chairman; his friend Michael Peich of Aralia Press printed this for what was Gioia's last formal event as chair. All three fine, and scarce; an interesting example of the demon Titivillus at work in modern fine press printing. Fine. Item #15305
