U.S. Music Icons series launches

The United States Postal Service is launching a new series of commemorative stamps honoring popular musicians. By the time the June Linn's newsletter arrives we will see new forever stamps issued for Lydia Mendoza and Johnny Cash. I know many collectors are looking forward to this new series – and we're all wondering who might appear on future issues.

Our special features this month include an article about the zany details in the designs of the new Road Trip Australia set, and a look at two of the world's oldest continuing definitive series – both from Scandinavia.

We also reveal the top winner of the 2012 U.S. Stamp Popularity Poll, and get the scoop on the newly published Vol. 2 of the Scott Standard Postage Stamp Catalogue.

Happy collecting!
