Rose approved stamp art

Illustrator: Gyo Fujikawa

By the early–mid 1990s, the USPS began to issue rose stamps more frequently and in various formats, such as the booklet, pane, and coil. This approved art represents Gyo Fujikawa’s third, fourth, and fifth rose stamps. As in the case of many approved postal art pieces, digital color adjustments were made to her final artwork.
