Jazz Stamps – coming March 2011

Thanks to Aural Addict for the scoop…

Jazz stamps will be coming out at the USPS in March 2011…

Paul Rogers designed the stamp based on several previous pieces of work by David Stone Martin, Alex Steinweiss and others (see below).

The only requirement given to Paul was that the letters J-A-Z-Z appear in the design and that no recognizable performer be depicted. Beyond that, it was up to Paul to communicate the feeling of jazz.  I think he nailed it.  Read more and see some excellent prototypes & sketches over on Paul Rogers’ site:
