Floral-themed stamps are apparently very popular with the customers of the US Postal Service.
The USPS have announced that they will be publishing a new set on 29th January 2016. This 'Forever' set will comprise ten different paintings of floral images relating to a detail of an illustration used for an American Nursery Catalogue between 1891 and 1912. The stamps were designed by USPS Art Director Ethel Kessler.
The images come from the Nursery and Seed Trade Catalog Collection of the New York Botanical Garden which has one of the largest collections of such catalogs in the USA.
