January 30, 2013 at 2:38 PM (PT)
JOHNNY CASH has been announced as one of the faces of THE UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE Forever® stamps MUSIC ICONS series.
BEYOND THE PERF: 2013 STAMP PROGRAM PREVIEW reported that CASH is the first of three set to appear in the series. The square features a photograph taken by FRANK BEZ during the RING OF FIRE: THE BEST OF JONNY CASH (1963) photo session.
“We get about 40,000 suggestions for stamp ideas each year but only about 20 topics make the cut,” said USPS representative MARK SAUNDERS. “These suggestions are reviewed by the POSTMASTER GENERAL CITIZENS' STAMP ADVISORY whose role is to narrow down that 40,000 to roughly 20 and then provide their recommendations to the POSTMASTER GENERAL for final approval.”
GREG BREEDING served as Art Director and Designer for the stamp.
A date has not yet been released for the stamp's debut.
