This year, the U.S. Postal Service honors American creativity with an array of new commemorative stamps. The 2008 program recognizes the influential design work of Charles and Ray Eames, the eloquence of authors Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Charles W. Chesnutt, and the lively rhythms of Latin jazz. Frank Sinatra and Bette Davis make cameo appearances, while the Vintage Black Cinema stamps recall the legacy of entertainment pioneers. Other commemoratives pay fitting tribute to diverse icons of American ingenuity, from the brave journalists who kept us informed to the brilliant scientists who changed the way we look at our world.
Beautifully designed as a keepsake for collectors of all ages, The Commemorative Stamp Yearbook is the perfect way to experience the 2008 stamp program. Featuring space for collectors to affix their matching stamps, this is a book no stamp enthusiast will want to be without.
