New Disney Stamps

August 7th, 2008

On August 7, 2008, at Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California, the U.S. Postal Service will issue 42-cent The Art of Disney: Imagination commemorative stamps in four designs.

With the help of some of Walt Disney's famous characters, these four stamps illustrate the theme of imagination. U.S. Postal Service art director Terrence McCaffrey joined with a design team that included artist Peter Emmerich and creative director David Pacheco to create four stamps that feature Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie; Princess Aurora and her helpers Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather from Sleeping Beauty; Pongo and one of his pups from 101 Dalmatians; and Mowgli and Baloo from The Jungle Book.

This is the fifth stamp pane honoring the art of Disney to be issued by the U.S. Postal Service. The first, issued in 2004, was on the theme of Friendship. The second, issued in 2005, focused on Celebrations. The third, issued in 2006 was on Romance and the fourth, issued in 2007, was Magic.
