USPSStamps WPA Posters Forever Stamps

We are kicking off the new work week with looking at the recently issued WPA Posters Forever Stamps.

There are 10 different designs commemorating the New Deal Program from 1935 to 1943.

Earlier this month the US Postal Service issued on March 07, 2017 the commemorative stamps.

“…Each stamp features a striking example of the posters conceived and printed in workshops across the nation under the WPA. Formed in 1935 as the Works Progress Administration, renamed the Work Projects Administration in 1939, the WPA lasted until 1943. By then, the function of its Federal Art Program Poster Division had been fully absorbed into the World War II effort…”

The stamps come in a book of 20, with 2 each of the 10 designs. They can be ordered here at USPS.com.

If you have been meaning to get some letters written and out the door before the end of First Quarter now is the time! Wishing you a great Monday as we look ahead for this last week of the month. Join me tomorrow for my Tuesday blog post.

Anchors Aweigh,

Helen
