Rienzi's Salon at Sunset: "A History of Britain in 36 Postage Stamps"
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Enjoy an evening with author Chris West as he explores the fascinating tale of Great Britain through its postage stamps. West shows that stamps have always mirrored the events, attitudes and styles of their time. See the epic tale of an empire unfold via 36 examples, from the famous Penny Black, printed two years after Queen Victoria's coronation, to the Victory stamp of 1946, anticipating the struggle of postwar reconstruction.
