2002 Commemorative Stamp Yearbook by United States Postal Service
Greetings from America
From the halls of the United States Military Academy to the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach in Hawaii, the 2002 commemorative stamp program offers a grand tour of the best of America, highlighting the people, places, events, and issues that are important to us as a nation.
The centerpiece of this year's stamp program is the colorful Greetings From America pane. The first pane of fifty stamps in a decade, these delightful stamps pay tribute to each of the fifty states with lively illustrations of monuments and landmarks. Borrowing a design sensibility from vintage "large letter" postcards, Greetings From America is an exciting tribute to America's many sites and attractions. Also honored with commemorative stamps is a genuine diversity of distinctly American subjects-from Langston Hughes to Andy Warhol, from Hollywood legends to pioneering women journalists, from cuddly teddy bears to the darkly fascinating world of American bats, each, in its own way, sending a special "Greetings From America."
Beautifully designed and illustrated as a keepsake for collectors of all ages, The 2002 Commemorative Stamp Yearbook is the perfect way to capture the excitement of the year's stamp program. Featuring space for collectors to affix their matching stamps, this is a book no stamp enthusiast will want to be without.
