Old Glory Waves Year-round on New 2013 Stamps

Here’s your first look at A Flag for All Seasons, a set of four Forever® stamps that show Old Glory waving proudly throughout the year against a backdrop of trees. The stamps will be released later this year,

FlagsSeasons-2013-Forever-block4-BGv2The stamp art, gouache on illustration board, is the work of Laura Stutzman, who used personal photographs of the flag as art reference. The seasons are reflected in the colors of the leaves on the trees or, in the case of the flag in winter, the lack of leaves on the background trees. Stutzman’s previous project for USPS was the Flags 24/7 issuance in 2008.

That’s it for the 2013 stamp reveals for this week. We’ll pick up again next week!
