The Civil War Limited Edition Box Set

Between 2011 and 2015, the U.S. Postal Service issued stamps to remember each year of the Civil War for the war’s 150th anniversary. The stamps were popular among collectors and the public alike, and the Postal Service invited Journey Group to create a product to contain all of the issuances in a beautiful, collectible item.

Editorial design and direction

Journey Group proposed a 23-page book, styled in the manner of Civil War newspapers, with bold headlines and a mix of appealing typography. The print studio editors worked to create content to complement each stamp issuance, paired with striking layouts that blended old and new design techniques.

Our team also worked with designer Joe White of Ye Olde Studio to create intricate, historically inspired seals for the book.
