The U.S. Postal Service previewed its stunning pane of 16 National Parks Forever stamps today in this collection that celebrates the National Park Service on its 100th anniversary.
The National Park System consists of more than 400 park sites. The stamp pane, designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, MD, includes 16 stamp images featuring existing art or photography representing the regional diversity of the National Park System. All stamps show national parks or plants, animals, artwork, objects and structures found in or associated with a national park. Small type on the margin of each stamp indicates the park’s location.
