According to info received by Austrian Post is ready to release a special stamp honoring the creativity of Arthur Zelger. The stamp will appear on the 5th of December and will be available for purchasing.

Arthur Zelger studied at the Werbegraphik an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna and later practiced with the legendary Joseph Binder. In 1945 he returned home to Innsbruck to open his own studio and became perhaps the best known Austrian poster artist of the last 50 years.

In addition to many posters for Tyrollean resorts, he designed the Linherr Vermouth poster and the official 1976 Innsbruck Winter Games poster.
