There are certain themes that always come up on U.S.P.S. stamps. Cars are one of those. It's a logical subject. This nation is very much formed by our dependence upon the automobile. This year's car issue features two stamps showing hot rods from really dramatic angles. I like how you could use them to make it look like the stamps are driving right out of your envelope. It seems sort of skimpy though, just two images. We got five different muscle cars last time. Perhaps they are waiting to see if there's enough interest to merit a second set in the series. These Hot Rod stamps were released on Friday.
I missed the release of the Nevada Statehood stamp on May, 29th. Many apologies, Nevada stamp lovers. I think the art direction of the statehood issues is really doing its best at making a really pleasing stamp for such a boring subject. Staaaaaaaaaaaaaaates. Booooooooooooooring. But it's a pretty stamp, in my very humble opinion. You guys know what I miss? Space stamps. Let's get some space stamps going on!
