A look back at 2012

As the year comes to a close, we look back at the many new United States stamps issued in 2012 and invite you to let us know what you think of them. Linn's 2012 U.S. Stamp Popularity Poll is now open for voting online and by mail.

Our special features this month include a look at lights on new Christmas stamps from around the world, and details of the new U.S. high-value definitive stamps issued in December. We also have photos from the Lady Bird Johnson first-day ceremony in Austin, Texas.

Wishing you the best this holiday season!
