DESCRIPTION:  Yves Klein covered postal stamps with his signature IKB (International Klein Blue) pigment to send on invitations for the openings of his double exhibitions in Paris in 1957 (May 10 at Gallerie Iris Clert and May 14 at Gallerie Colette Allendy). This portion comprising 64 complete stamps is from those executed during the period 1957 - 1959, when Klein continued to use the stamps while he exhibited with Iris Clert.

Each stamp measures 1 x 0.8 inches. These proportions are like so many of Klein's serial panels, and all stamps are unused and archivally stored since execution.
