And they all arrive together on the same day:August 4, today!

Art is the Envelope /the Envelope is Art (all 3 are 1/2 A4 size) Beginning with the sun...

and across the first four planets in the US postage stamps:

Mercury,Venus, Earth and Mars...

then on across the astroid belt, passing the postage stamps of Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus..

and on the third to the far reaches of our solar system  passing Neptune, man-made thang, and Pluto.

Or as we say here: O Helios, with Hermes, Aphrodite, Ge, Aris, Dias, Kronos, Oranos, Posideon, Pluto :-)


And inside each art envelope, Phillip added a "filler" with the Women of Science!

all related to the "stars" and outer space!

Many thanks, this is very special!

Yes, the one envelope with Jupiter and Sature,etc. was hand cancelled. You might be able to see a mark across the postage stamps? It looks like they were sent on 18 July? and arrived 4 August :-) Postal services getting better day by day! Fabulous "planet" postage, many thanks!

Great to see them all arrive together for a complete (but not to scale) solar system. They were posted together - so it is odd that one doesn't have a postmark.
