Hand-made Covers by Hideaki Nakano ~ 1980-1989

        On this page you will find 69 oversize First Day Covers and event covers hand made by Hideaki Nakano. Most HNLP covers are large (6" x 9" or bigger), odd shaped, fold-out, fold-in, made with stickers, jigsaw puzzles, origami, etc. and often include "mechanical" devices that pop up, rotate, move, slide, and interlock. They were made in extremely limited editions of 10 to 50. The covers are very unusual and have many themes: humorous, bizarre, protest, political commentary, X-rated, etc.

        HNLP (Nakano) covers are sold mainly at cover auctions and are rarely stocked by dealers. At recent McCusker auctions, prices ranged from $15 to $60 and higher. My discount prices here (bottom of page) were way under typical auction prices.

The Entire Collection of Covers by Hideaki Nakano is SOLD !
