Apples on new U.S. stamps

January 21st, 2013

With these stamps, the U.S. Postal Service proves that apples are not only good, but they're also delightful, cheery stamp subjects.

Some of America's favorite varieties of this popular fruit are shown in these four stamps, each depicting a different kind: the bright-red Baldwin, the green Granny Smith, the yellow Golden Delicious, and the multi-colored Northern Spy. The stamp art was illustrated with pen and ink and watercolor, with some additional detail added on the computer.

Designed by art director Derry Noyes, Apples features the work of John Burgoyne.
