New stamp offerings announced

USPS will release a U.S. Flag stamped envelope and a pane of stamps honoring artist Ruth Asawa this year.

The Postal Service has announced two new stamp offerings.

Japanese American artist Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) will be honored with a pane of 20 stamps that showcase 10 of her wire sculptures, using photographs by Dan Bradica and Laurence Cuneo.

The selvage features a photograph of Asawa taken by Nat Farbman in 1954 for Life magazine. Ethel Kessler served as art director and designer.

A U.S. Flag stamped envelope featuring a graphic design of the flag will also be released. Kit Hinrichs created the artwork and Kessler served as art director.

USPS will announce the release dates and other details later.

The Postal Service announced most of its 2020 stamp lineup in October, followed by additional announcements in December and January.
