At 294 pages, Larry Margetish’s The Story behind Canada’s Caricature and Landscape Issues, edited by Gray Scrimgeour and Brian Plain, is a major work that looks at all aspects of the stamps of the Caricature and Landscape series, which replaced the 1967 Centennial definitives.

Released between March 1972 and October 1973, the stamps remained in use until 1979. This period saw many changes in the stamps themselves, including the first multi-coloured definitives, low-value definitives without an image of Queen Elizabeth, and standardized tagging.

On the mailing side, postal codes were introduced, fluorescent envelope barcoding began, and many postal rate changes were implemented.
