Forever John Lennon: U.S. Postal Service Honors Music Icon in Commemorative Stamp
John Lennon will soon be on a Forever Stamp from the U.S. Postal Service.
This is the latest in a series of music icons to appear.
The stamp artwork is based on a 1974 photo of Lennon taken by rock music photographer Bob Gruen for Lennon's "Walls and Bridges" album.
The stamp resembles a vintage 45-rmp record sleeve. The reverse side has Lennon at his white piano, from a photo taken by Peter Fordham that was used to promote Lennon's landmark 1971 solo album, "Imagine."
A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Sept. 7 in New York City.
The USPS Music Icons series includes several legendary American singers, including Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Forever Elvis Presley.
