Songbirds in Snow Forever First Class Postage Stamps
The Songbirds in Snow stamps each features one of four birds: Golden-Crowned Kinglet, Cedar Waxwing, Northern Cardinal, and the Red-Breasted Nuthatch. Illustrator Robert Giusti painted the original designs in acrylic on canvas board, depicting each bird perched on a snow-covered branch. He and the art director chose these four birds for their color, attractiveness, and adaptability to the small format of a postage stamp. Golden-Crowned Kinglet The golden-crowned kinglet is only a little larger than a hummingbird. It can survive nighttime temperatures of 40 degrees below zero. The tiny birds roost in evergreen forests and huddle together in small flocks high up in the branches to help them stay warm. The cedar waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) gets its name from its favorite winter food, cedar berries, and the red, waxy tips of some of its wing feathers. One of the few North American birds that thrives on a diet of mostly fruits, the cedar waxwing also consumes the winter fruits of juniper, mistletoe, and crabapple. A spot of bright red against the white of a snowy tree branch signals the presence of a northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis), one of winter's most colorful and beautiful birds.

20 Botanical Art USPS Forever First Class Postage Stamps Beautiful Flower Bloom
20 Botanical Art USPS Forever First Class Postage
The U.S. Postal Service® continues its tradition of beautiful floral-themed stamps with Botanical Art. The stamp art features ten designs, each a detail of an illustration from an American nursery catalog printed between 1891 and 1912. The design details are courtesy of The New York Botanical Garden; the catalogs are part of NYBG's Nursery and Seed Catalog Collection, one of the largest and most important such collections in the U.S. In the mid-19th century, as more people discovered the joys of ornamental and recreational gardening, thriving commercial greenhouses and nurseries marketed plants to the eager gardeners. To entice buyers, the nurseries created colorful catalogs illustrated with beautiful blossoms and lush foliage. The illustrations were idealized, romantic versions of what plants could look like, but they fueled many a garden dream. The artists responsible for the work seen on early nursery catalogs are mostly unknown to us now, but their captivating work lives on. Art director Ethel Kessler designed the stamps. The Botanical Art stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price. This listing is for 20 new forever stamps.

Celebrate "Old Glory" with this patriotic 2016 U.S. Flag stamp. The American flag has long symbolized the strength and spirit of our nation. This 2016 U.S. Flag First-Class Mail® stamp features a detail of Emmanuel Faure's vivid photograph of a U.S. flag waving against the background of the sky. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed the Flag Act, stating that the U.S. flag should consist of 13 alternating red and white stripes and 13 white stars in a blue field. In 1818, Congress passed legislation stipulating that the number of stars on the American flag should match the number of states in the Union. There are 13 stripes and 50 stars on the current flag. The words "USA FOREVER" are printed on the bottom of the stamp. Terrence W. McCaffrey was the art director of the project and Greg Breeding designed the stamp. The self-adhesive 2016 U.S. Flag First-Class Mail® stamp listing is for a double-sided book of 20 stamps.

USPS Forever Stamps Star-Spangled Banner Booklet of 20 (Fireworks)
USPS Forever Stamps Star-Spangled Banner Booklet of 20
Issued Jan. 28, 2014 this stamp was featured at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the "Star-Spangled Banner." This stamp design features a photograph of the flag that flies over Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore, MD. This flag is a replica of the one that inspired Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner" after realizing Fort McHenry had withstood the British attack of Sept.13-14, 1814. The picture of the flag was taken against a backdrop of fireworks during an annual celebration of Defenders' Day, a legal holiday in the state of Maryland commemorating the successful defense of the city of Baltimore on Sept. 12, 1814 from an invading British force during the War of 1812. Photographer Gary Clark said it was a challenge to get the fireworks and the flag in the same shot and that "the wind picked up quite a bit that night." Art director Phil Jordan designed the stamp. The Star-Spangled Banner stamp is being issued as a Forever Stamp, which is equal in value to the current First-Class Mail 1-ounce price. This listing is for a double-sided booklet of 20 stamps in new condition.
