An Post — First Dáil Centenary Stamps

This project was completed at WorKGROUP.

During my time at WorkGroup, we were commissioned by An Post to design two stamps commemorating the centenary of the first public meeting of Dáil Éireann, held on January 21, 1919.

The first stamp features a painting by Tom Ryan depicting the members of that first Dáil, while the second stamp is a graphical representation of those that were either present or absent on that historic day. The stamps were issued along with a first day cover, illustrated with a ticket to the famous event.
