France and USA joint stamp issue: Edith Piaf and Miles Davis

June 26th, 2012

The joint issue of France and the U.S. pays tribute to Edith Piaf and Miles Davis, two world-renowned figures who have triumphed in France and the United States. For Americans, Piaf is the symbol of France and Paris. For Miles Davis, France was a revelation, a country less racist than the U.S. and where he had the sensation of "being treated like a human."
