American stamps now embrace a wide range of subjects and themes,
they traditionally commemorate the profound events that shaped
our nation. Conscious of the importance of their work, stamp artists
approach these topics with a deep respect for the resonance of
the past in American life.
the same time, these artists freely experiment with a variety
of styles and approaches. Some stamps include designs that convey
an almost mythic universality, while others focus on the humanity
of specific figures. Each stamp is not only a historic artifact,
but also a work of art—an interpretation of another chapter
in the American story.
