25c Marianne Moore single
- Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Marianne Moore was honored with a 25-cent commemorative stamp, the eighth in the Literary Arts Series. The stamp was issued on April 18, 1990, in Brooklyn, New York.
- T.S. Eliot helped bring Moore's poems national recognition when, in 1915, he published several of her poems in the Egoist, a London Journal of Imagism. Imagism is the literary movement dedicated to poetry of naturalness, directness, and precision.
- Moore was the recipient of the most distinguished literary awards in America and has often been called "America's first lady of poetry."
- Designed by M. Gregory Rudd, the stamps were printed in the photogravure process by the American Bank Note Company and issued in panes of fifty.
