Every stamp is a work of art in miniature. In 2001, award-winning artists have brought talent, tradition, and imagination together to pay tribute to an impressive array of Americana. From legendary baseball playing fields like Fenway Park and Wrigley Field to legendary funny lady Lucille Ball, from the breathtaking landscapes of the Great Plains prairie to the comic-strip world of Snoopy and the rest of the beloved Peanuts gang, here is a colorful celebration of the people, places, events, and ideas that are important to us as a nation.
Highlighted in this year's collection is the "American Illustrators" stamp pane, honoring the artists whose contributions to books, magazines, posters, and murals have recorded fads, fashions, and follies, as well as the pivotal events that have shaped the past century. Whether it's the heartwarming snapshots of American life by Norman Rockwell or a window into the Jazz Age provided by John Held, Jr., this delightful pane shows that these artists have created some of the most familiar and enduring images of our time.
Beautifully designed and illustrated as a keepsake for collectors of all ages, The 2001 Commemorative Stamp Yearbook is the perfect way to celebrate the art of stamps. Featuring space for collectors to affix their matching stamps, this is a book no stamp enthusiast will want to be without.
