In honor of Chinese New Year, there's a new stamp release on Saturday, the 7th, for the Year of the Ram. I'll admit that I like knowing more about the celebratory traditions of the new year through these completely baffling stamps, but the lack of iconography in it makes me less inclined to use it. The dragon stamps were pretty great. The drums and firecrackers were okay. The flowers and fruits were a snooze. They've never topped the cut paper issues from way back in the 32 cent days in my opinion. I think that's why they continue to use those designs as a graphic element on these less identifiable stamps. The coloring on the stamps and the use of the gold is gorgeous. I will definitely get some of these, but not a whole lot.
