USPS to lauch a set of stamps in honor of Ansel Adams

Post by titrisol »

USPS announced that a set of stamps with 16 iconic images of Ansel Adams will be launched in 2024

Date for launch is not yet set

Ansel Adams
One of the most renowned and influential artists of the 20th century, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) made thousands of awe-inspiring photographs that collectively create a rich visual portrait of the American landscape. A masterful photographer and dedicated environmentalist, Adams sought to imbue each of his black-and-white prints with the power and wonder he felt in the presence of nature. These 16 stamps feature some of Adams’s most famous images in his signature “straight photography” style, an approach defined by its precision and directness. Derry Noyes, an art director for USPS, designed the stamps.

These are really cool. I think that I'll have to buy a sheet when they are released. Heck - maybe two sheets.

Thanks for letting us know.

I'll probably frame up a sheet of them, and get more to use.

I was thinking of doing the exact same thing! Many of Ansel Adams' best photos, but in miniature.

I was thinking to buy 3 or 4 sets, and attach one in each of the St Ansel books I own
But the framing idea sounds better
