US stamps celebrate coffee with four espresso stamps

I’m not a philatelist but I love a pretty stamp, or a nostalgic one or an educational one.

So I have sheets from the Lunar New Year series (the Year of the Ox is a stunner) and the Muppets, which will always make me smile. And thanks to the U.S. Post Office, I learned about the wire structures created by American artist Ruth Asawa in the 1950s. 

My next selection of stamps will celebrate coffee. These stamps depict four styles of espresso for an international flair.

The U.S. Postal Service just announced they are celebrating America’s love of coffee with a booklet of 20 stamps featuring designs illustrating espresso, cappuccino, caffe latte and caffe mocha.

Artist Terry Allen created each digital illustration in the style of 1920s and 1930s advertising posters. The names of the drinks appear in art deco-inspired lettering above or below each cup. Using the original artwork by Allen, art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps.
