In celebration of the Black History Month UK, the world's leading stamp emporium, Stanley Gibbons is hosting (for the second year running) an exhibition based on the stamp collection of award winning African-Caribbean creative Jon Daniel. Classically trained as a graphic designer, Jon has worked primarily as an art director for many of London's leading advertising agencies. Currently, Jon is working both independently and with partners on a variety of commissioned and self-initiated branding, design and cultural projects.
This unique display of fifty stamps, specially selected from Jon's personal collection and the archives of Stanley Gibbons has been created to celebrate Jamaica's historic fiftieth anniversary of independence.
Last year's collection, originally inspired by the lyrics of Public Enemy's 'Fight The power', featured in the October 2011 edition of Creative Review's exclusive publication, Monograph and formed part of a wider exhibition that was held at Stanley Gibbons flagship store at 399 Strand, London in October.
