USPS has released a preview of the upcoming Maya Angelou forever stamp.
The stamp features a hyper-realistic painting of Angelou by the Atlanta-based artist Ross Rossin. The original painting is currently on display at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery through Nov. 1. The stamp also features a quote from the author: “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”
The stamp will be issued at a dedication ceremony on Tuesday April 7th. In the meantime, you can preorder the stamps here.
