2007 Postage Stamps to Honor Stewart, Fitzgerald

The U.S. Postal Service has announced its lineup of stamps for 2007. Among those featured will be James Stewart (the 13th actor to be honored in the "Legends of Hollywood" series) and Ella Fitzgerald. Scroll down at the subject link to see the artwork for each stamp.

Striking stamps honoring Longfellow (with Paul Revere riding in the background) and the Settlement of Jamestown (an unusual triangular design) are among the other stamps we can look forward to next year.

(Hat tip: Missyisms.)

If you're an early shopper, Christmas stamps are already available at the post office! This year's new designs are the Madonna and Child and snowflakes. My local post office tends to run out of these as Christmas nears, so I like to stock up as soon as they're released.

I'm glad they got some images up! Did you view the full pane of the Jimmy Stewart stamps? Very nice.

I'm going to have to buy Jimmy Stewart, Longfellow, Jamestown, and Tiffany. Right now, I'm using Gee's Bend Quilt stamps. They're longer than regulars and a bit tricky on postcards I send via Postcrossing.com.
