New USA Bicycle Postage Stamps Coming In 2012
There has been a lot of buzz about the new Bicycle Postage Stamps coming out in May 2012. They were designed by art director Phil Jordan using four illustrations by John Mattos. “Each of the four colorful se-tenant stamps features a different kind of bike and rider: a young child just learning to ride with training wheels, a commuter pedaling to work, a road racer intent on the finish line, and an airborne BMX rider.”
Although these are cool looking stamps, they aren’t the first to represent the biking culture. I did a quick Google search and pulled up a few really great images of old bike postage stamps, perfect additions for your collection.
UPDATE: Looks like they moved the release date to June 2012. Big miss in my opinion – since May is National Bike Month.
