USPS Vintage Circus Poster stamps

The U.S. Postal Service has launched Vintage Circus Posters Forever stamps. The stamps were launched May 5th at The Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. The stamps are modeled after original circus posters.

Ellen Williams, member, Board of Governors, U.S. Postal Service, says in the announcement, "P.T. Barnum, the great American showman, businessman and founder of the Barnum & Bailey Circus, once wrote that 'the noblest art is that of making others happy.' At the Postal Service, we think these new stamps will do a spectacular job of doing just that. We hope people will proudly display these new stamps on all their cards, letters and packages and, just like the circus does, we hope they will bring joy, wonder and amazement into the lives of everyone who receives them."
