Yet Another Philatelic Holiday Gift Idea

USPS is offering a set of Twentieth-Century Poets note cards that have beautiful lines from ten great American poets and evocative illustrations created by artist Vivienne Flesher.

The set includes ten cards (blank inside, so you can customize), ten envelopes, and ten corresponding Twentieth-Century Poets (ForeverĀ®) stamps. According to the USPS, "The cards are perfect for any occasion and offer something a little unexpected this time of year. Get a set for yourself or for the poetry lover in your life!"

The ten writers featured in the set are Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, Gwendolyn Brooks, E. E. Cummings, Robert Hayden, Denise Levertov, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams.
