Walt Whitman Stamp

The USPS releases the new Walt Whitman stamp today as it celebrates the 200th birthday of this American poet. This stamp is used for 3 oz mailings.

I think it’s a beautiful stamp – the colors, the background, the lone bird.  The Whitman stamps is part of the Literary Arts series by the USPS. Others in the series include:

Mark Twain

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Flannery O’Connor

John Steinbeck

Herman Melville

In my small stamp collection, I have about a dozen authors and books, including some from this list.
