Canada Post has released the next in their popular Lunar New Year stamp series. Tracy Walker illustrated this elegant rabbit to celebrate the Chinese year of the metal rabbit. Embossed foil stamping was used on the stamps as a reference to the "metal" element of this Year of the Rabbit. For more information about the stamp and the traits of the Year of the Rabbit, pick up a free copy of Details magazine from Canada Post. This year should feel more peaceful than the previous Year of the Tiger. The Year of the Rabbit will begin February 3, 2011, but these stamps might sell out before then - so hop on down to the post office today!
