Old Glory and Lady Liberty

USPS got the jump on the 39c January 8 price increase yesterday by issuing a non-denominated, first-class, definitive in Washington, DC.

The stamp (shown at the left) is now on sale and features The American Flag and the Statue of Liberty.

According to a USPS announcement, professional photographers Carl and Ann Purcell of Alexandria, VA, combined separate photos to create the montage used in the design.

The couple have written four books about travel writing and photography; and, as far as I can determine, this is the first time their work has appeared on a postage stamp.
