USPS celebrates WPA Posters on new forever stamp booklet

On March 7, 2017, in Hyde Park, NY, the U.S. Postal Service will issue the WPA Posters stamps (Forever priced at 49 cents), in 10 designs, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) booklet of 20 stamps (Item 674600).

The stamps will go on sale nationwide March 7, 2017.

The U.S. Postal Service celebrates posters of the Work Projects Administration, striking and utilitarian artwork created during the Depression by the Poster Division of the WPA Federal Art Project.

This booklet features 20 stamps of 10 different designs originally created to support the civic-minded ideals of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal Program. Each stamp features a vibrant example of the posters conceived and printed in workshops across the nation under the WPA, a broad-reaching program that provided millions of jobs during the Great Depression.

Poster images are from Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, WPA Poster Collection. Antonio Alcalá served as the art director of the project and designed the stamps with Maribel O. Gray.

PMG Megan J. Brennan will dedicate the stamps March 7 at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, NY.
