The stamp illustrates a portret by Yousuf Karsh, framing an all-knowing academic figure, with his trademark beard worthy of a mythic god.

Robertson Davies was a novelist, playwright, critic, journalist, and professor, being one of Canada’s best known and most popular authors, and one of the most distinguished “men of letters”. Davies was also the founding master of Massey College, a graduate residential college associated to the University of Toronto.
