JOHN LENNON TO APPEAR ON POSTAGE STAMPS


 





The U.S. Postal Service will unravel several lines of celebrity-adorned stamps over the next two years, offering numerous music-related stamps, including John Lennon, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix this year and a James Brown stamp next year. 2015 will also see a re-release of Elvis Presley's 29-cent tribute from 1993 — the Postal Service's best-selling stamp ever — according to The Washington Post. A stamp for John Lennon has been planned for an as-yet-unannounced date. The Postal Service is looking to attract younger stamp collectors with some of these new additions; because some of these proposed stamps betray previous stamp guidelines (such as the subject being American, in the case of John Lennon), this new direction has become controversial among older philatelists.
